Wondering if you may find this useful?
... and look toward the lower quarter of the list for, "*Domenico, I8CVS (SK) published a two-part article*in the AMSAT Journal about his design for switching polarization on circularly polarized antennas. The PDF files are available for download as*Part1* https://www.amsat.org/amsat/articles/i8cvs/Part_1_AMSATJournal_MarApr07_I8CVS_Polarization-1.pdf(2MB) and*Part2* https://www.amsat.org/amsat/articles/i8cvs/Part_2_AMSATJournal_MayJun07_I8CVS_Polarization.pdf(4MB)"

I'm looking for an old AMSAT Journal article by Domenico Marini I8CVS titled "Switching Four Polarizations on a 70cm Crossed Yagi." I looked up Domenico to ask directly but learned he is a silent key. If anyone could send me a PDF, or guide me to where I might find an archive it would be greatly appreciated.
Also interested in any feedback on mounting yagis in an X-configuration and using horizontal polarity for VHF contesting plus other polarities for satellites. Minikits offers a kit to do the switching, apparently inspired by Domenico's design.
