Re: Mode L uplink antennas



Hi Keith:

A search on Google turned up construction details on a 24 element loop Yagi 
by Directive Systems, which until earlier this year, were sold by Down East 
Microwave.  Now, they sell their products direct.  Directive Systems, 
manufactures high quality VHF/UHF and microwave antennas and accessories.

Loop Yagis are great antennas on 1296 and 1269 MHz.  This antenna is 
advertised as 18 dBi gain with 24 elements on a 6' boom.  It could easily be 
shortened as needed for a satellite antenna.
