I'm in the process of upgrading my satellite array. Hope to add an AZ/EL
rotor system, and build a complete stand-alone satellite antenna system.
Right now, I'm sharing my weak signal Yagis for satellite duty.
I'll be limited in boom length to about six feet maximum due to
construction of the attic itself. Anything longer, and I start bumping
into things. I'd like maximum performance from the space, so I'm
wondering if any short length circular polarization antennas are made
commercially? Everything I can find (at least in the States) are
Feedline will be 3/4" hardline for the 432 antenna, and an SSB
Electronics pre-amp. 2 Meters will get 1/2" hardline for feedline, and
an SSB Electronics pre-amp. Runs are about 50 feet.
