Satellite Eggbeater Antennas


How would you like to try a different type of satellite antenna?

In this video from Robert J. Meade, we see two different approaches to the "classic" Eggbeater Antenna--a DIY model and a commercial example from M2 Antennas.

This is post 2516 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Here are some general comments from Robert:

In this video I give an overview of the design and use cases for 2 distinct eggbeater antennas, a DIY eggbeater V2 antenna and a commercially produced eggbeater antenna from M2 Antennas, both designed for 435 MHz and have right hand circular polarization.
