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.
