Moxon 2m + 5el yagi 70cm , dualbander

I am operating via satellite SO50 for a week using Baofeng UV-5R plus two band Moxon-Yagi antenna with very good results: ES5CC  ES6SW  ES6DO  LY2SS  G6AHX  ON5NY  OM7OM  DG0ER F0EQE  RX3QQL RW3ADB  F5HO  LZ1KG  ON2VHF .

It was noticed that on low elevations if antenna is lowered to the ground reception is greatly improved (RS from 53 to 59).  Try it!

Friend I need to know which Baforeng radio model do you use for TX with satellite?
The rods can be of another material eg welding?
What if this Maxon antenna works in or near the apartment window where I live?
And most importantly, how is the coaxial cable connected to the antenna?
Thanks for the reply.
