For satellite work, it's not a bad choice. If you drop the hints, do you have a good shot of seeing it on Christmas Day?  Smiley

Didn't see much in the way of gain or pattern spec for this thing.  Log periodics aren't known for gain and you really don't need the bandwidth that these offer, so if it's performing characteristically I don't think you're getting the bang for the buck you would get and need for satellite.
