If you do a lot of weather satellite monitoring, you'll find this tutorial on QFH antennas (Quadrifilar Helix Antenna) most interesting.

You can modify the antenna to cover GPS and Amateur/Ham Radio bands as well.

Her are some general comment from the author:

If you want to build an antenna to receive signals from a weather satellite, you will need a special kind of circular polarized antenna known as a quadrifilar helix antenna. In this video, we'll go through the theory and practice behind how to build a QFH antenna. These antennas are especially-made for NOAA weather satellite reception and are tuned to 137MHz to receive polar orbiting satellite signals. This is part of Project TIROS for element14 presents.
