In answer to your question YES.
Managed a contact through it last week at a range of 2700Km using a tri-band colinear 10m above ground, no pre-amp and a Kenwood TS2000 running 50W. Location here is 10m above sea level.
Not easy but it can be done!!

Has anyone tried working FO-29 with egg beaters or other omni directional array? I have plenty of power and a good preamp. I have yet to put my yagi's together (after my last move) and wonder if I can cobble together something that will work.
