During my portable operations in Arizona, I used my ft-8900 with the Arrow
II with 20 watts and was able to make contacts just fine Down to 10 degrees
on low passes. All that it requires is some power and very importantly you
have to flip polarity to get the best transmit signal and you need to know
what freqency you start on and end on. For me it's 436.170 AOS, and 180-185
end of pass.
