There was an article in a recent copy of Practical Wireless about making
a DDRR antenna for 2m out of the ring around the top of a catering-size
coffee can.  It's not quadrature as such, but I wonder if you could fit
such a thing inside the body of the rocket looking down, with its ground
plane acting as the bulkhead for the nose cone?
