    The antenna most important piece of equipment used to work a satellite. With a good antenna you can use a simple scanner and achieve great results. Most of the links below are for home brew(homemade) antennas.

    Great site with alot of antenna design plans from the simple to the complex.(This is the site I used to make my first antenna)

    No problem. If anyone wants to add more go right ahead. The more information and people we can get the better this fourm will be.
