Polarization switches and cables

This is a summary over some of the polarization switches and cables that can be used for satellite antennas. If you find more products please contact us and I will add the info.

First of all a very good page about polarization is this one by SV1BSX. Also DK7ZB has an excellent page about cross yagis and polarisations. And PA3GUO… Google and you will find a lot more pages…

I have also made a post about making the WRAPS switching, the post is in swedish but there is also a PDF in english by the creator Mark Spencer WA8SME.
