I am now in the final phases of my rotor build, and I am starting to look at antennas.
I have not looked at all the satellite transmission specs, but I am wondering what polarization I should consider.
Am I correct in presuming the VHF antenna would be either Horizontal or Vertically polarized? If so, I would have to switch between them based on the satellite.
Same question about the UHF band - LH or RH polarization?
In an ideal world, I would have 4 antennas and switch between them based on which satellite I am tracking.
Does this sound right? I am aware that a single rotor could handle 2 antennas, but I would have to select an antenna that has one or the other polarization and switch between them or run them through an RF combiner. I had seen someone on the forums who implemented a switch, so I am not so worried about that.
If I select one polarization at each frequency, am I losing the ability to see a couple of satellites or a whole bunch?
