Hi Henk, PA3GUO

The Mak article SV1BSK (SK) is a very good article indeed about circular

Unfortunately our good friend MAK died too young at the beginning of
this year.

In my opinion there is a mistake in the last two drawing of the article
where he is depicting two crossed yagi.

The green dotted line as seen from the reflector is really showing a CCW
polarization and the red dotted line of the last drawing as seen from the
reflector is really showing a CW polarization.


This is only my optical opinion or my optical illusion ?
I would like to know your comment about because the sense of 
polarizations CW and CCW as marked by MAK seems to me to
be reversed.

I recognized it only this evening.
