I've been on the birds off an on for years. I have an M2 cir. polarized pair
at home QTH and am looking into a more modest installation for a summer
cottage. I've built the K5OE eggbeater imitations and founds them to be only
fair.I could by M2 eggbeater pair but I'm trying to do this on less $. I
also have an Arrow antenna which I've tried some with a HT with only fair
results. Any other suggestions out there? Mount the Arrow more permanently
but at a fixed elevation and use a simple rotor to change azimuth? How about
a homebrewed quagi? Any suggestions appreciated.
