	The WIMO Helix 23 worked great for me down into the satellite

	Does this mean I may have a use for my L Band equipment soon?

Subject: [amsat-bb] L Band antenna recommendations?


I'm looking for a recommendation for an L band antenna suitable as a
groundstation uplink to a satellite in LEO.
Does anyone have anything they could check for SWR on 1264 MHz please?

Linear polarisation is fine as the receive antenna will have circular
polarisation.  Most of the published data I've seen assumes the user will be
on 1296.

Any thoughts much appreciated

Many thanks
