REALLY new to SATCOM. Looking for the most active frequencies for casual listening.

To catch everything that's up there you need a proper circular pol antenna with a little gain. I have a garage full of military surplus UHF satcom antennas and you can also home brew one from the article and instructions in post 11 here: MT magazine UHF Satcom antenna project

The X-wing antenna project sits on the ground and is right hand circular pol with an upward facing omni directional lobe that favors 20 to 60deg elevation for optimal reception in the US.
Would you be able to steer me into the direction to buy any used gear? I'm horrible at DIY projects, and would rather use something that I know works. You can either reply here or PM me.

Thanks!
