Back in the "goode olde dayes" (i.e. OSCAR VI and OSCAR VII), before elevation rotors were popular, we used a horizontally polarized yagi fixed at 30 degrees above the horizon.  That worked very well even for overhead passes.

I saw on this bb a site or note that shows the overall average elevatation.  As I remember it elevation is surprisingly low for most passes.  Where can I find it?
