1.2 GHz antenna question...



John:
        One possibility for an antenna is in the 1998 ARRL Radaio Amateur's
Handbook. There is a picture of a helix antenna specifically designed (by
me) for 1269 and a matching solid state amplifier. The article is back in
the satellites section. This setup will also work fine on 1296 terrestrial
(recognizing that it is circularly polarized and is therefore suitable for
use with either horizontal or vertical polarization terrestrial antennas
without too much loss). Works well, easy to build, cheap.
Have fun!
