Few more comments:

Running 50w into the "Lindy" works the middle of the pass, OK on 
AO7-mode A.  I need my 8-element 2m yagi to do better.  Since the 
support tower is out of commission until spring, I could move the 
B5400 and 2m/70cm antennas to a tripod mounted mast that I have used 
temporarily when roving or other things.  I could mount the UHF part 
of the Arrow and the 8-element M2 2m yagi for a low impact set up 
that would probably still work mode O/V and  mode-A OK.  I will think 
about setting this up in the next couple weeks.

This would resemble my old satellite setup at the old house on the 
flat roof (in a minimalist fashion).  I will not set up the 1268 
loop-yagi or 33-inch dish (KISS).  I could set up the 2.4GHz panel 
antenna with LNA and drake converter.

I'm back!
