Just about everyone I know that started out with eggbeaters now has directional antennas.

Subject: [amsat-bb]  eggbeater rx performance 

I/m interested in the possibility of using oscars 27, 29, 50, 51, and 52 
without using rotors or directional antennas and maybe while mobile.  Uplink 
seems not to be a problem as one can always QRO to a level where the 
satellite sees an apropriate signal level that is enough but without robing 
power from other transponder users.  On recieve though you still gotta be 
able to hear 'em to work 'em.  Is an eggbeater and a preamp enough to hear 
decently or is there another (better) way?  Is working mobile and/or without 
directional antennas even practical?  what's the best way to do it?
