It would be nice if someone made a circular polarized antenna with

The only problem might be whether to use Left or Right circular as there's 30 dB's attenuation between the two.

The IARU recommends using Right-hand Circular, see 8.8.7 of the VHF Handboook at

Circular antennas are available from Wimo
