Re: Once again: Realistic BBQ Dish Gain with Original Dipole Feed, and After It's Converted for Circular Polarization



How about posting some web pictures of your dish for those of us who can't
attend.

I'll have that homebrew, circularized BBQ antenna on demo at the SatEL
indoor booth at the Dayton Hamvention, if anyone wishes to come by to take
a
look.  It's not for sale but you might like to see how easy it is to modify
the BBQ dish for circular polarization.  With the extra 3 dB gain that
circularization provides, and its portable nature, smaller size, lighter
weight, and relative "air-transparency" compared to larger, solid dishes,
it
makes an attractive AO-40 option.
