>> ... Should I be able to hear AO-51 using an eggbeater with no preamp?. 

Eggbeaters are great conversation starters. For working the FM sats, I have not been excited with my Eggbeater's performance. 
And I own one of the best - with horizontal plane kit installed.

Just get a little "directionality" to your antenna ... Heck, we're working the FM birds with Tape Measure Beams. And with 
"better" HT antennas.
