Re: Dual Band (2m-70cm) Mobile Antenna Recommendations

By definition, a good antenna for repeaters is bad for satellites. Repeaters are on the horizon, satellites are usually higher when they are strong enough to hear.

Please see the OMNI antenna discussion at the bottom of the ASTARS web page:

Use a 19" 2m whip in the center of your roof.  It has almost 5 dB gain above the horizon on 2 meters and over 7 dB on UHF.
