I am very inerested in performance reports from omni leo antennas, so could you clarify "good enough" for us?  Even a 1/4 whip is "good enough" for the middle 2 minutes when any satellite is above 30 deg..  But that is only 20% or less of all access times.

And of course anything is good enough horizon-to-horizon for the ISS..
