Re: UO-14 via portable in oceania



Eddie:

You will have much better luck with gain antennas.  I use a commercially
available (Arrow) set of crossed yagis - 3 elements on 2 meters and 7
elements on 70 cm and do quite well with 5 watts.  There are several web
sites that describe hombrew antennas that will do the job.
