Re: ARRL dual moxon turnstyle project questions

I will certainly second Gould's comments.  I recently Elmered some locals to
get on the birds for FD.  They ended up with some ancient Cushcraft
satellite antennas, an azimuth rotator, and a preamp.  In descending order
of improvement, they got the circular polarization set correctly, installed
a 70 cm preamp, and understood how to set the correct fixed elevation.  By
the time they got done, they had a very respectable signal after climbing a
very steep learning curve very quickly.  The array is packed up now, and one
op is using a set of M2 egg beaters.  He still gets in, but not as well, and
absolutely needs a preamp.
