In reply to 2E0KPO:
I agree with you, re. 2mtr. ssb and fm, an example, I managed to work Robin GM7PKT/P, 2m ssb, on three summits last weekend and as a bonus, MD/DL2BQD, on GD/GD-001 on 2mtr. fm HORIZONTALLY polarised!! so, even if a minimal station is taken onto the tops, for whatever reason, laying the radio over to the hoizontal and lining it up 90’ to the direction they wish to send
/receive, using the gear as a single element beam, they will be amazed at the difference.
I know you know this but obviously a lot of folks out there don’t!!
Thanks to you and John M0JDK for 6 out of 6 last weekend!!
