I have an Andrew bifilar helical antenna for the240-320 MHzMILSAT band, same antenna pictured in back of their old catalogs. I paid a lot of money (mostly in shipping) to acquire it. But far less than what this seller wants. It won't do you any good in the ham bands, but you might find interesting listening in the MILSAT/Fleetsatcom bands. A few years back I found some "pirate" (Portuguese) operators quite active on the satellites. I think they have all been caught by an interesting mix of technology and trigonometry and have been silenced.
