Re: Eggbeaters vs. Potato Masher vs. Quadrifilar

Trees are not my problem, but I can tell you that a quadrifilar pointed 
straight up will cover from ~30° above the horizon with some gain...3.5db??

I used it with a relay system program to select the quad at ELs above 30°, 
and horizon pointing antennas to cover up to 30°...It worked very well for 
the low orbit birds...

Pick your angles!!
