I just notice that but when i try to explain our previous QSO'S the satellite was below my wet roof top and it's kill all S band signal.
Since about 5 passes i'm quite alone on mode V/S but i can test my new wifi beam and i don't know if an helix can beat it? The S band
antenna is linear on AO-51 and as far i can remember in theory using a circular polarized antenna will induce about 3db of losses?
The fades a nearly gone on most of the pass but those remaining come from very bad antenna pointing on the satellite.
Hope to meet you again on the LEO'S
