I have been testing the U.S. Antenna Cantenna on my roof for several months now. I think it is an ok antenna. Even with a preamp, I'm not real impressed. If your overriding concern is to be stealth, it is probably a good compromise.

Thanks to everyone for all of your responses. It looks like I have
found a downconverter. Next question... Does anyone have any ideas on
a cheap and easy homebrew antenna? Would a "cantenna" work for a small
portable setup? I'm trying to do this as cheaply as possible as AO-51
isn't in this mode very often.
