I'm hoping I don't have to build my own, as I can't seem to find a decent quality quadrifilar helix antenna
to use for receiving 137 MHz weather
fax info from polar satellites. There's ton's of information on building your own, but I was hoping to find one similar to this one from National RF
, or this one from Time-Step
in the UK.
seems to be no better than a typical homebrew, and I'm waiting to hear back from Time-Step. I think OCENS at one time offered a quad-helix as part of their weather
receiver package, but I can't seem to find recent info on it.
I'm planning to use it as a backup to HF weatherfax info... I'm not ready to break out the big bucks for a satphone with data capabilities just yet!
