Mark and all,

Made my first S band contacts tonite on the 0400z pass (20 deg. max). 
Worked K7MT, N7DAS and N5UXT with a portable setup. Thanks guys!

I had the Keps downconverter using the 435 IF and an 802.11 8db patch 
mounted on an Arrow with the UHF elements removed into my IC-W32A. All 

I had some serious fades but it worked. I have a pic of the antenna 
setup at http://www.vanagonuts.com/ghzarrow.jpg

Thanks also to Mike KE4AZN for his great web page. 
It showed me this type of setup is possible.
