Re: Pryme AL-800

I have been successful at making satellite contacts using an Arrow II 
antenna with either my VX-7 or my VX-2. Now the Pryme AL-800 antenna 
does not give me good results. And I used the same radio, same location, 
just switched antennas, and verified that the Doppler correction was 
still good (by reconnecting the Arrow II antenna).

Is there a learning curve using the Pryme AL-800 or is it just that the 
Arrow II is so much better? I will be traveling overseas and taking the 
Pryme AL-800 would be easier than the Arrow II and its multiple parts. 
So if it is more training I need, I have the time to do that. If the 
Arrow is so much better, I may just need training in taking it apart and 
putting it together quickly enough...
