Re: 5/8 wave GP antenna for sats (was Re: ...)

I also have a uhf vertical antenna at the moment and I don't have
problems on the AO51 downlink sigs when the sat power is set to high.
I'm anyway unable to work the sat when working out with the normal
power setting.

Maybe in the US.... here in Italy the max power output for repeaters
is 10W erp and I think it's like that on most countries in Europe.
