Spedix Pagoda 2 5.8ghz Antenna, LHCP, SMA (By Maarten Baert)
The Pagoda 2 antenna is an omnidirectional circularly polarized antenna design that Maarten created. Main design goals were:
-Good omnidirectional radiation pattern.
-Good axial ratio.
-Easy to manufacture within fine tolerances at low cost, even for a hobbyist.
