After a very long absence I have been invited to try A07 on 
mode-A.  Cognizant of the battery issue, I am asking some guidance:
Regarding uplink transmitting power:

I will be using my FT-847 with a Lindenblad for uplink, so with no 
antenna gain what is recommended for power.
For reception I have two 10m antennas (3-elem triband yagi, or a 
J-pole); easily switched with a coax switch.
no elevation of any antenna

What is the condition of the 29.520 CW beacon?

my directional array crashed in high winds Tuesday night so will only 
have the "Lindys U/V" and 10m antenna for sat use until spring.
