    An independent review of this antenna was published in the November 2008 issue of QST Magazine [Ford, Steve, WB8IMY, "SHORT TAKES: Antennas.us 70-cm Satellite Antenna", QST Magazine, November 2008, pg 72].


    The UC-4364-328 is a compact Quadrifilar Helix antenna (8 cm/3" OD x 16 cm/6" H) designed to operate through Amateur Radio satellites, without requiring an antenna rotator. The goal of this product is to offer Amateurs with severe space or community restrictions the ability to receive 70 cm HamSat signals, and communicate through orbiting repeaters (transponders). Ham satellites operate cross-band: you will generally need a VHF uplink transmit antenna for 2-way communications. A companion VHF unit is available UC-1464-433.

    We came across the following webpage while navigating the internet, containing some recordings of satellite signals using the UC-4264-328R (RHCP/Right Hand Polarization version) about a foot (30 cm) above ground level. K6JEB website contains some real life Amateur Satellite signal recordings. The sound pitch drifts due to the Doppler shift of the rapidly moving satellite platform.
