I have a 2M squalo and a 70CM squalo that are unused. I would like to use them for LEO satellites. Has anyone used squallos for LEO? Has anyone added a reflector? What were the results? Thanks in advance.

By design they are omni-directional with little gain ... ok for receive, but better results can be had using simple handheld beam or Tape Measure Yagi.
