You could look at a 12 element ZL Special 1.1M long and gives 14dBd gain.
In the UK they are made by Moonraker

Hi, Les

I've been using an M2 420-50-11 for satellite use for years now, and it 
works great.

Not as much gain as the old KLM 30-element CP antenna I have, but then 
it's not 10' long either!

Check it out at the M2 website:
