Satellite Eggbeater 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.
