I once was told that on linear birds one should not have a downlink
signal that is stronger than the beacon of the bird.
Beware I'm new to birds, only been listening so far to both fm and ssb birds.

I need to either invest in another ft-817 or drag my ft-857 out side
to use with my elk antenna.

I'm currently waiting on a pair of heil pro7, after that I should not
have to many excuses for not trying to tx (8

Hope to hear you catching some waves.
