[amsat-bb] Question adding RHCP to Cheap Yagi

Good Morning All:

I've been using a 10el version of Kent Britain's Cheap yagi for my 70cm 
downlink antenna.  It suffers from deep fades so I am going to add the 
second yagi with physical offset to get to RHCP in the x config.

Question is:

normally I would reverse the coax connections to a dipole driver but 
this is a hairpin (half of a folded dipole. )

Do I reverse the connections as normal?  Kents instructions just say 
offset the elements and feed in phase.
