I think you will like the turnstile Moxon. I recently, last week, fabricated
one for receiving Russian navigation satellites on 149.940 to 150.030 MHz
and was very pleased. It replaces a commercial QFH I had in my attic. I used
3/4" wide aluminum straps for the elements, a 90 degree hybrid coupler
instead of the phasing network, and held the ends of the elements in
alignment with 3/4" wide strips of bare G-10 printed circuit boards.
