Keep in mind the uplink is 432, not 435 where the TenTecs normally are. 
I suppose you could recrystal the transmitter, but not sure how well it 
will tune/work 3 MHz off.

Otherwise, I usually have no problem with an Arrow and pair of 817s, or 
even a whip on the downlink and UHF half of an Arrow on the uplink, and 
5 watts.
