Rotators are great, but I've been thinking about a lower-cost and more portable alternative. My method is not better - just different.
After carefully monitoring comments from others here and elsewhere online, tonight all the pieces came together and the scheme actually worked even better than I expected. And I wasn't even in a particularly good location!
Basically, I used a couple of the dual-band Arrow antennas that many people already have.
I wrote up the details with a couple of pictures on a little 1 1/2 page PDF that you can read at the following URL if something like this interests you.
