I forgot to add that these are patterned after Tony, AA2TX, designs 
(UHF version is in Feb. 2010 QST).
My variation was to use pvc sched-40 plastic pipe (white).

The preamp is one of the older DEMI designs that uses a mgf-1302 
GasFet with about 0.7 dBNF.  I see about one s-unit of noise when I 
turn it on.  There is 4-feet of RG-58 to the UHF Lindy and 60-feet to 
the FT-847 from the preamp.  The VHF Lindy has no preamp and is fed 
with 60-feet of RG-213.

The VHF Lindy brings up repeaters 70-miles away with 50w, and the UHF 
Lindy hears repeaters that far away.  So actually can make a nice 
general purpose antenna.
