What is the advantage of a helical wire satellite antenna?

Circular polarization characteristics of a helical antenna help offset the effects of spin modulation from satellites in motion, that is, the tendency for satellites to spin causing the position of their antennae to change rapidly in accordance with the spin, causing a fluctuation in the signal as received by a fixed signal on earth. Circular polarization of the earth fixed antenna reduces the fluctuating effects of the satellite's spin on the recived signal.
