So take the K5GNA reflector, cut it along the bends, drill and fit small
hinges making a stop of some sort to give the correct angle when open and
there you go.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Mode S Antenna quest

I have been experimenting with different Mode S antennas for 
portable/mobile use.  My latest test was with a Luxul flat panel antenna 
  This one was a disappointment in this application.  I went back to the 
K5GNA reflector.  The problem is that it doesnt lend itself to packing 
into the Pelican 1490 briefcase that I keep my satellite demo kit in.

Has anyone tried any of the "flat panel" type of antenna with good success ?
