How to build a QFH Antenna for NOAA Weather Satellites.

If you need a special antenna to monitor NOAA weather satellites, then this "QFH Antenna" is for you.

Matthew Eargle (the "AirborneSurfer") takes us step-by-step through the design, building, testing, and use of this easily-made antenna. 

Matthew discusses both the theoretical and practical parameters of this useful antenna.

Here are some comments from Matthew:

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.
