I apologize if this topic has been covered recently, but I am asking again.  I am in the middle of redoing antennas, and am looking to keep something up for the FM satellites. How well will a 1/4 wave dualband groundplane work on the satellites?  I remember reading a review in QST in the past year or so about a dualband J pole,and the reviewer said he got into AO27 and AO51 just fine.  What can I expect out of a 1/4 wave antenna?
