It is linear. You are right that the information exists, but is sometimes
not readily available. A good place to look is the Weekly Satellite Report
which AMSAT distributes. For many, but not all satellites, that information
is just below the frequency information. For AO-51 we find:
Mode and Antenna Polarization:
U: TX A (usually digital)LHCP
TX B (usually analog) RHCP

Does anyone know the polarization of the 2.4 GHz transmissions from AO-51.
Are they circular? If so which polarity, RHCP or LHCP? Are they linear?
If so is there a preferred receiving polarization? I have examined the
AMSAT web site and many references on the Internet, but cannot seem to find
