Check out the K1FO designs in various editions of the ARRL Handbook.  I 
scaled the 2m design to the satellite sub band (1mm shorter in element 
length) and really like how it worked.

Are there any websites out there with plans that show how to build a cross polorized antenna for these two bands. I'm sure one could be built for half the price of the M2 satellite antennas. Also i have search the internet for plans that show how to build the circular polorization switch for LHCP/RHCP but have yet to find one. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
