Question about the Arrow 2m/70cm handheld yagi:

Are they 90° for any reason other than making it easier to tune each band?

Or do the birds tend to have their antennas 90° offset from each other for that same reason?

See, I'm new to this, & so far, only FM. Struggling to understand how to tell if I'm only listening for polarization-fade on the downlink, or if I simultaneously need to concern myself with the orientation of the uplink.

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

Anyone here successfully used aprsdroid on a phone with no headphone jack? I.e using a USB-C to audio adapter cable plug into the radio?
