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.
