I wouldn't recommend a J-pole for satellite work unless you expect to
only work sats on the horizon. The J-Pole antenna has a low take-off
angle and almost NO radiation overhead, an plain 1/4 wave ground plane
antenna would work better for the sats.
J-poles are great terrestrial communications antennas, not so much for
working overhead satellite passes. An Eggbeater or quadrifiliar antenna
would be a better choice.
