I use my IC-910H on the U-band uplink and it works fine, along with a 13 
element vertically polaised yagi. I usually have to run less than its 
full 75W otherwise Leila takes an interest in me. It is very possible 
to work AO-40 with a barefoot IC-706 (20W) into the same yagi.

How strong do you hear the beacon ?

Which doesn't really mean very much, theres a huge difference in 
magnitude between the two.
