There are MANY sateliltes you can receive if you use at least a 3 element
beam for UHF, but unitl you get a beam, it is not worth trying.  When you
get a beam, let me know. (Or a corner reflector about 2 feet tall)

I like to hold the small beam in my hand and manually point it, that way
you can experiment without a lot of investment... and also have very short
coax run and not need a preamp...

Anyone else have an online newbee-file to send him?
