This is post 2572 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
Do you need a simple, reliable antenna for LEO (Low Earth Orbit) Amateur Radio Satellites? If this is on you "to do" list, then this video from John (KB2HSH) may answer many of your questions.
According to Jerry (K5OE), the Eggbeater Antenna "is an omni-directional antenna using circular polarization to maximize signal capture from low Earth orbiting satellites." This antenna "is 2 full-wave length loops fed in quadrature."
The video lists all of the materials and tools needed to design, build, and test the antenna.
Thanks for joining us today.
