Or just maybe, YOU could respect what others choose to do in operating on
the sats. Some people simply do not like using the HT method...(me for

I know of no rule that says its Clint's way or the highway..

Gawd, I don't know what for ... (grin) I mean, ARISSat-1 was a measly 250mW
on its 2M broadcast, and I couldn't ask for a stronger, cleaner signal from
it that I had while receiving it with my HT and an Arrow antenna.

Same with SO-50 and AO-27.

Keep it simple! If you are NOT clearly hearing decent passes of '50 and/or
'27 with small beams/Yagis on your HT - then there is something wrong
elsewhere in your setup.
