The station you are proposing is just the same station I have!
Maybe it's not the best installation but I really think it is worthy. :-)

I can work the satellites up to the horizon and I feel I can usually be the
first to enter and the last to leave the pass ...

I am happy with my station. Maybe the antennas are not enough for EME ...
:-) but I am using the smallest antennas!
