I've been doing mostly HF for the last 20 years and just recently installed a 2m/70cm mobile rig in my shack for base station work. I like to work FM simplex and repeaters when the HF bands are not cooperating, and would like to build a beam for those bands.
What negative or positive impacts would a circular polarized beam have for terrestrial communications? An uneducated assumption would be that it would work well for both repeater work (vertical polarized) and SSB/CW (horizontal polarized).
(I'm also interested in having one antenna that I can use for satellite work in the future if the compromise is small)
