Re: Horizontal Polarized Antenna

if you're using single plane polarization yagis for the sats it doesn't 
matter what that polarization is ssince the satellites are not fixed in 
their polarization themselves often the satellites are rotating even so 
there will be no change in effect if you decide to do horizontal or 
vertical. Most satellite work is done with circular polarization because 
it receives equally well no matter the polarization so the satellite 
won't fade at all if it rotates. if you have a copy of the ARRL handbook 
the space communications chapter would be a good thing for you to 
read...although it is a little bit outdated
