I haven't tried it in just over a year, but I used to work FO-29 with an arrow on a tripod regularly from my car with a 706 and a FT-817 for receive. No preamps. Didn't work everything but worked plenty.

I'd like to hear from anyone who has worked FO29 portable. We are
working with a group of guys on an expedition to a small island and I'm
hoping to take only an IC910H and an Arrow hand held Yagi mounted on a
light camera tripod. Clearly I can work SO50 with that, but how about
FO29? Will I be able to hear it with that small antenna and no preamp?
