[amsat-bb] circular polarization of antennas not on same axis

I have 2 of the ELK antennas which I mount at 90 degree angle to each other and switch between as the satellite rotates.  My question is:

Could I feed the two ELK antennas which are 4 feet apart, on the same boom and at right angles to each other, in quadrature phase and achieve circular polarization or perhaps decent elliptical polarization?
