I am building my antennas for a new station that will use the SATNOGS rotor design.
I also have the materials to build the circular polarised SATNOGS UHF antenna.
I also have the materials to build the SATNOGS VHF yagi.
Does anyone have a design for a cross yagi that would result in being able to receive both linear polarizations? I understand that the cross yagi design is a circularly polarized antenna. My thinking was that it would receive from any VHF satellite while not being so suceptible to fading due to cross polarization issues with a single VHF yagi.
I manage a local non-profit Maker Space, so I am not too keen to drop $400 Canadian on a nice commercial cross pol antenna.
My last question is this: Are most VHF satellites in one linear polarization? If so, maybe I only need a single yagi.
