  10W and 7ele uplink will not be enough for SSB contact with 80cm
Dish & good NF converter. I am now trying with 13W (at feedpoint)
and 11ele crossed RHCP YAGI (handmaid) and 80cm Dish, but sometime
I could not copy what I'm saying on the loop test.

  But it will be OK for CW contact (or psk31).

  Lets try to upgrade your 70cm uplink antenna. 11 to 15 ele YAGI
requires 2-2.5m boom length but you can try to make it for foldable.
