I just wanted to give a description of my satcomm antenna setup . On the uhf side I took two Cushcraft 44911s yagis, Combined them on one boom 90 degrees out of phase, Short equel lengths of LMR 400 feed line, Running to a M squard power divider with N connectors.A single feedline to the radio. Thats it for uhf. For VHF I purchased a Cushcraft A14820t, Equel lengths of LMR 400 feed line, Running to a M squared vhf power divider with N connectors.A single feed line off of that to the radio. Both antennas are mounted on a non metallic cross boom. They are set at a fixed elevation of 30 degrees, I figure with the beam width of each antenna Ill get good elevation coverage. I prefere low elevation passes, Further contacts! Azmuth rotator and the preamps on the radio. I also added a pair of M2 eggbeaters one for vhf and one for uhf, LMR400 low loss coax to each.I use those when the beamwidth of my yagis dosent cover overhead passes I switch to those using MFJ N connecter rhino coax switches. The eggbeaters work very well for terestrial ssb! I guess thats it. talk to you on the birds. 73 TOM
