WOW!. Thats great. Hardly any money spent on those antennas and you have been quite
successful working the birds. I will get back with you after the holidays for additional info.
By the way, I forgot to mention that I have a new Yaesu FTM-400XDR.I'm sure I could
use it for the SATS along with my Kenwood TH-D72A.

Hi Jerry. I set a Comet CA-2x4SR NMO in the center of the roof and a COMPAC 136-174MHz/400-480Mhz at the rear corner of the roof. Being elliptically polarized, this antenna has to be on a corner to work properly. I have tried many antenna combinations, including eggbeater types and I like this combination the best. Between the properties of each, I get a good signal. Perfect? No, but simple to rove and power to get into the crowded birds. KC9UQR
