Experience tells me that the success come when you can change the polarization. So my advice is to build two dual-band linear antennas and set it in 90º with enough separations between them. You will remember this advice each time you turn your antenna switch and the signal emerges from the noise. You will take advantage of the 80% of each pass.
Do not forget to take into consideración other similar easy-yaguis to build such as the IOio antenna.

This may have been discussed before forgive me if it has I am new at this.
I was wondering if an Elk or Arrow antenna mounted on a mast at an angle with a TV rotor would work as a base antenna for Satellite work. Has anyone done this and any tips on how you have been successful. If this does not work what would be the best antenna other than beams for under $200.00 to do this? Thanks for your information.
