Thinking along those lines
Speaking for a "Non" satellite station point of view. I saw on here (I think) that the power level was going to be slightly higher for the current schedule. I have an FT-847 and a 6m/2m/70cms omni on the roof. I also have a 2m/70cms pre-amp near the antenna. On a pass yesterday morning, I could hear AO-51 reasonably well (when folks weren't keying over one another) so I dropped my call-sign into a small gap. 4 contacts later (and one on the next pass), I'm still smiling.
Looking for a cheap rotator now suitable to hold a small beam for VHF/UHF.
Actually I have a Mini-kits L-band LNA. Any pointers for a simple to construct antenna?
