Helixes and VO-52 (Was: Polarization of HAMSAT downlink)

Ykes!!! Domenico and all experts out there... does this mean that my idea of
building a couple of QFH to start with the sats, won't do any good to my
chances of hear better DL on VO-52??? I mean, of course, without modifying
the construction of the 2M Helix which is, as I understand, devised for the
majority of the Sats already in orbit... :-(

A full blown Sat station with crossed yagis and switchable polarity is out
of the question now, so what is advisable to do to start with moderate

I've made a bunch of QSOs on the VO-52 using my poor Dual Band Vertical
collinear, but it's clearly not the right way to get on the sats...

Any hint would be very appreciated!

PS... Dom... I don't hear you anymore calling on VO-52... what happened?
