Speak to Matt, VK2DAG (think he lurks here).  As for obtaining them, look on
the rooves of friends' places, and if you see one, ask if you can do them a
favour and take it away. ;-)  I've still got my eye on one that I know is not
being used... :-)

The Galaxy antennas contain a downconverter that is suitable for a 70cm IF.
