patch antennas for AO-51

Hi S-band users,
Wonder if anyone has used a commercial patch antenna (no dish) for the S-band downlink.  This would be for a hand-held operation.

What's been your experience?  What models have you used?  Anyone use a Hypergain antenna from Hyperlink Technologies?  VK2TRF got me thinking about it.  Has the patch been an improvement over a hand-held helix and/or dipole with corner reflector?

Tnx and 73,
Tony, N2UN
