My first mode A contacts were with a 10-meter wire dipole in my garage 
attic, and a homebrew 2-meter turnstile antenna on a tripod in my driveway. 
Rig was a set of Drake B-line twins with the TC-2 transmit converter... 
100% hollow-state!

I haven't been on A07 for a while. But, back in the "goode olde dayes", I 
used a horizontal 2-element 10-meter yagi with a 7-element 2-meter beam 
fixed 30-degrees above the horizon. That worked VERY well!
