Cool setup, have fun with it. I have a 980 at my base (no amplifier, unmodified) and I work all up and down the east coast on a pretty regular basis. Building antennas is half the fun, so go for it, experiment, and enjoy the hobby. Talking across the country on an antenna you made yourself is more rewarding.

You might want to Google "choke balun" and think about doing that if you get interference in your shack from RF on the feedline, though at low power it might not be a problem - just a thought.
