I have looked at them for mobile operation, but I'm not certain that 
they would have enough gain to work well inside my attic. I'm going to 
try the Diamond 11 element Yagi to start with. Low cost and I can put it 
to good service for portable 432 operations if it turns out not to work 
well in this application.

What is your experience with using the Myers indoors?
