Either way will work.
I have had superb success with mine, in fact during the days of AO-40 I
worked the world with it as an uplink antenna with 50W.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Question adding RHCP to Cheap Yagi
Good Morning All:
I've been using a 10el version of Kent Britain's Cheap yagi for my 70cm
downlink antenna. It suffers from deep fades so I am going to add the
second yagi with physical offset to get to RHCP in the x config.
normally I would reverse the coax connections to a dipole driver but this is
a hairpin (half of a folded dipole. )
Do I reverse the connections as normal? Kents instructions just say offset
the elements and feed in phase.
