Equipment at VE3NPC is a 52 turn helix with reflector cup into a DEM
preamp and downconverter into SatPC32 controlled FT-736 for 13cm.
Uplink FT-847 with 2 watts into 2 x 6 el quagis for 2m.
Complete info on the 52 turn helix in the Sept/Oct 2008 AMSAT Journal
Its not as good as the 1.2 meter dish it replaced but performs quite well
considering its overall size.
