I know what you mean :-)
I have allways worked with big antennas and now I did it with a yagi
that you can hold in your hand.
The portable gives 2 watts of rf power and I was surprised that my
signal was so clear to copy.
I will be in Italy on holiday from june 11 till 23 and hope to make some
sat contacts with it.
