Currently for my satellite station I am using double stacked vertical polarized yagi antennas for 2M and 70 CM.
However, due to mounting constrains, I would like to mount them in a H configuration instead, on the G-5500 rotator, with the 2M antenna on one side and the 70 cm antenna on the other. A yagi for L and S band will be mounted in between the two antennas on the horizontal boom.
This would mean that I will require the antenna to be horizontally polarized instead of vertically polarized unless I use a non-metallic boom. Before I perform this, I would like to know what are the differences with using horizontal instead of vertical polarization when operation the LEOs such as AO-51, SO-50 and etc. Also, what are the effects of using a horizontal polarization with the ISS on 2M?
Sorry if this has been asked before, but was just trying to be sure before I perform any major modifications. Thank you very much in advance.
