As a reasonably long time licensed ham (40 years), but very new to
satellites, I would like to ask the brain trust whether CP antennas are
really needed. I am ready to buy a set, but in poking around the net, I
found this exchange by Mike , K6MYC, about not using CP antennas:
Look at http://www.qth.com/ka9fox/ant-nest.txt
Look towards the bottom, and Mike's replies are in caps.
I do not have the real estate for separate 144/432 antennas for
terrestrial and sat. I have the az/el rotors.
So whats the thought on this? Should I just go with a pair of H-pol
beams and leave well enough alone, or should I go with the CP antennas?
