No problem.
 
I used something very similar from 3B9C.  (set of hotel step ladders rather than camera tripod.)
 
Just check for breakthrough before you go.....and possibly the TX rating of the duplexer?
 
Good luck

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?
