OK, I finally received the ARROW satellite antenna. I believe I have all 
necessary to make AO-51 contacts (any maybe SO-50) while I am camping in 
the Motorhome. I have a Yaesu FT-470 with Speaker Mic, the Arrow antenna 
and I approprated the camera tri-pod from my bride. Not going to worry 
about logging until I get comfortable enough receiving.

I seem to remember someone mentioning they used the tripod top plate to 
change polarity. How was that done? Do I need to poke a hole thru my New 
Arrow to attach it to the tripod? Anyone out there BTDT (been there, 
done that)?
