Subject: [amsat-bb] FS: M2 149T-CP14 Circular Polarized Antenna
I was contacted by a local ham recently who'd like to find a good home
for a sat antenna currently located at their emergency comms site.
The antenna appears to be a M-Squared 149T-CP14 circular polarized
antenna. It has the following measured specs: Boom 118” (9’ 10”),
Driven elements (2): about 37.5”, Reflectors (2): about 39”, Other
Elements – range about 35 to 34”. The spec sheet for this antenna
indicates it has 10.3 dBi gain and a frequency range of 148-150 MHz
(yes, this is outside the 2m ham band).
It's been at a fixed az/el position on an office bldg roof for a while
but is reportedly in great shape. They don't use the antenna anymore,
so he'd like to know whether anyone in the satellite community would
be interested in this one. Contact me off-list if you're interested
and I'll put you in touch!

Hi Dave, KB5WIA
The above antenna 149T-CP14 has been designed for the ATS
Advance Technological Satellite use into the band 148-150 MHz
and so of no interest for the Amateur Radio Satellites.
