I tried several times to get the mode A downlink of AO-7 to work for me. I tried a dipole, a vertical (ground mounted)
and also a 3 element yagi but no dice. Next step is to get the vertical up at 20 or 30ft. and see what happens then.

If it's for general antenna concerns, then yes but you wouldn't be able to rotate it in a very effective way :). I built a 
rotatable dipole for 10m once using PVC pipe and then running the wire alongside that pipe. Now one could of 
course build it out but then it becomes a matter of material as well in order to keep it stable.
