Agree !!

Along those lines, before I put up my Kenpro az/el rotor, I plan on testing
various locations using my Elk with a fixed el but on a small rat shack
rotor for az. I have seen here recommendations for 15 deg and some for 30
deg fixed el. Thus there seems to be 2 schools of thought on this. Is there
any compelling argument for one or the other? I'm almost inclined to split
the diff at +-22 deg. (most passes for me are N/S and to the E - not so good
to W

Any thoughts appreciated

Hi all,
Regarding the discussions on antennas - I am not into any debate about the  
pro's and con's, but would
just like to encourage anyone to just have a go. 
Sure the argument will always prevail perhaps under the " Must do Better"  
comment and I am sure
that one can always improve or progress with experimenting -  (  AMATEUR
