I homebrewed a 6el yagi for 2meter ssb and put it up on a tent pole mast, only 16 feet high. I was able to contact a neighbor 13 miles away even when reducing power on my ic7100 down to 1 watt or so. (readable, but weak) There are a few others in eastern Washington that are putting up their 11el yagis when the weather improves. I bought a nmo connection for my rig and some lmr400 cable as well as an nmo bulkhead connector for my antenna to try and maximize my signal. I don't have any means to get higher than about 25 feet, basically using a field type setup when I'm home, and taking it down when I have to leave for work. Mostly looking to see if anyone else in eastern Washington/ north idaho/ northern Oregon is using 2m ssb.
