Check Bob Bruninga's (wb4apr) treatise on 19" verticals for use on 440 
and 2 meter satellite frequencies (rather positive but you need a good 
ground plane)

Google his call and 19" ground plane or look in the archives here...

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?
