Satellite communication capable antenna?
#1
I've been thinking of getting this antenna: http://www.arrowantennas.com/arrowii/146-437.html

Has anybody had experience using it? It seems to have good reviews on eham, and it looks like it'd work well with my FT-60r.

I'd love to try getting into amateur satellite communications, so if anybody has any pointers please let me know. Thank you. Smile

I have one of these:

If you'd like to see it or give it a try on your radio, just let me know at the next club meeting and you're more than welcome to take a look. It usually hangs out in the back of my car and is awaiting the 2m module for my KX3.

Just as a follow-up, I ended up getting that antenna and it works wonderfully! I made a satellite contact on it to SO-50 with great distance about 6 months ago (I haven't tried lately since the amsat site was hacked and that had been my primary mode of sat tracking). It's a shame that there aren't more birds in the air.
