You will be disappointed with the signals from any omni antenna with these

That is my experience.

Sorry to bring bad news.

A fairly small directional antenna will make you much happier.

73 and Good Luck!

Subject: [amsat-bb] J-Pole Antenna

Looking for a simple omnidirectional antenna for AO-7 (B), FO-29 
and VO-52, I
came across a description of a J-Pole - dual band, single mast 
antenna, done by Dick Jansson, WD4FAB several years ago.

This looks like the solution for my situation. Before I start 
building, I would
like to know, if somebody here has experience with this antenna.

Thanks and 73
