Jim's point about directional properties of antennas away from their 
design frequencies is well taken. 

Another hint, learned from Fox Hunting, is that an HT with a duck 
can be form a directional antenna at VHF and UHF by holding it close 
to your chest, letting your body block the reception from one 
direction. It worked well enough on 2M to get me (and some others) 
quite close to the Fox pretty quickly in club hunts.
