Hello,   KQ6UP

If you have an Arrow Antenna, why were you using a 5/8 wave?

5 watts into the Arrow Antenna should be more than enough
to get into AO27.

If you are using a dual band HT you need to use headphones
so your radio will work in full duplex mode,  to hear yourself.

Are you using a duplexer with the antenna?
