For reception of amateur radio satellites, turnstile antennas (consisting of two crossed dipoles fed out-of-phase) are often used.
I've recently had an idea - what if two half-wavelength dipoles are made out of coax cable (so-called bazooka antennas), and then connected in a T-shape like this:
' 1/4 wl center ' " 1/4 wl braid bent back " ."""""---- # 1/4 1/4 # # # # feed coax #
(the vertical and the horizontal antenna cables are connected together at the middle point to the feeder cable (denoted by #)
EDIT: The elements are connected by a phasing line of 1/4 wavelength for a 90-degree shift, not 180 as I originally described.
Would this antenna work like a turnstile?
