With all the Mode B sats, I think I see why it is on sale:

"While used specifically for satellite operations, the Alpha Sky Sphere and Sky Counterpoise Kit still maintain a SWR of less than 1.9:1 on 2 Meters; as this is the band that transmission to satellite occurs. SWR is a little higher on 440MHz and this antenna should not be used to transmit on this band."
