      Al,

         The TX runs 5 watts, figure 3 db loss on the coax, and the omni is essentially 0 gain ( a dipole wrapped around), so the ERP would be around 2.5 watts.

      Can you kindly advise the power level at the antenna feed point?  I have the antenna gain information and can calculate the EIRP,  this is most helpful when doing tropo evaluations .  Kudos on your choice of the M2 antenna, IMHO, they are the best and will last a lifetime...      And for those who might not be aware, there is Frank's, W2UHI beacon on 432.299, still going strong, runs 10 watts HP, from Grand Haven.

      The former K8EB six meter beacon is back on the air, with a few
      small changes.

      It's now located just north of Holland, still on 50.065 MHz.

      The call sign changes a bit, from K8EB to K8TB
