VHF/UHF antenna ordered

Just ordered  a 5 ele for 70cms and 3 el for 2m which are fed with a single feeder coax and form a single antenna from Moonraker.  This antenna is reduced in price by 30% this weekend.

I intend to mount this dual band antenna on my 50mm diameter pole and hand rotate it by turning the pole out of a window next to the shack. It should mean a couple of S-points extra on 2m (compared with a halo fed with RG58 coax) and on 70cms I have no horizontal antenna.

UKAC sessions on a Tuesday night , GDX and beacon hunting should be a great deal more fun.
