Hi David,

It comes down to whether you want to build or buy. If you want to build, 
a helix is one way. If you want to buy, check out the loop yagis from 
Directive Systems. Be aware, you want the loop yagis that cover the 
satellite uplink band rather than terrestrial operation which is at 1296 

I use a Directive Systems 45 element loop yagi and ~80 watts.
