Re: Crossed yagis




To add to Arts reply:  this is illustrated in Fig. 8-11 (page 8-10) 
of The Satellite Experimenter's Handbook - Martin Davidoff, 2nd Ed. 
and available from the AMSAT Store.  This book provides in-depth 
information on a wide range of subjects from Leo to Heo.  There are a 
fair number of example formula to assist one in just about any 
question one can ask about satellites.

This is timely question as I am about to retrofit my M2-436CP42U/G to 
switch polarity.  My Heo array has been down for two years and now 
going back into service.  I Love to work on antennas when its 10F and 
snow is on the ground ;-)

A very best to everyone at Christmas and in the New Year!
