The Arrow antenna will be a good choice. The very first contact I made after 
receiving my Arrow antenna was with Col. Doug Wheelock aboard the ISS on 
July 14, 2010. I was using a Kenwood Th-F6a HT @ 5w output with my new Arrow 
The Arrow is not the only choice, but I think many will agree that it is a 
good choice for portable operations.
Welcome to the wonderful world of amateur satellite communications!
