Re: Eggbeaters



Art,

I agree with what you stated.  Another thing about EB ant is
that you need the radials below the antenna.  The EB was one of
my first satellite antennas.  I improved the reception with the preamp.
It is now my back up antenna system.  I have both 2m and 70cm
EB's mounted on my tower at about 40 '.  I use crossed yagis for both
bands on a separate tower for satellite work now.  I am also mounting
S band and L band antennas with G5500 rotors after field day.

Happy Fathers Day!
