Thumbs up Simple V Dipole For Satcom Downlink

I recently made a V-Dipole antenna using a set of rabbit ear antennas after looking at an article I found over at the rtl-sdr blog.

Simple NOAA/Meteor Weather Satellite Antenna: A 137 MHz V-Dipole

He was using it to rx weather satellite images, I figured if it is good enough for that maybe I can use it to rx the uhf f-7 bird. Sure enough I was able to get great reception.
