Q. for antenna experts!

On another list for High Altitude Balloons a question came up
on installing an 802.11 system on board and what antenna would
be best on the balloon.  Circular polarization came up.  Of course
low cost - commercially available was key also.  Any suggestions
on the balloon side for 2.4?  I have seen low cost circular patch antennas
for 2.4.  Is that a good pattern for up to a 100,000 ft source?

Guess the balloon side should be LHCP?

The balloon payload would be thrown around and spinning in flight.

Thanks for any ideas.
