The MT X-wing project antenna works better than a $7,000 military Trivec X-wing within CONUS, I've measured them both. To build your next adventure you will need to make and test a 75 ohm phasing harness different than the X-wing so that it provides a 90deg phase shift between elements or use a commercially made 90deg hybrid coupler and exact lengths of coax to the elements. And you will have to point it at each satellite, where the X-wing is omni directional at the various angles to the satellites. Or I've bought the entire 8 element antennas like shown in your pic on Ebay for under $150.
