random question...SATCOM antennas?
« on: September 20, 2015, 2216 UTC »
I've seen a few plans for homebrew UHF satcom antennas online (looking at you, Chris!), and apparently military surplus antennas show up on ebay from time to time.  Does anyone know if there's a reasonably priced (for argument's sake let's say <$200) hobbyist grade antenna available on the commercial market?
