A study of the effects of human proximity on the polarization purity of two types of circularly-polarized handset antennas for personal satellite communications was investigated using the hybrid method of moments (MoM)/finite-difference time-domain technique. Associated with this, assessments of specific absorption rate in the head were made. The method gave stable results, in accordance with physical expectations; good agreement with the pure Method of Moments was shown in simplified cases omitting the head. The quadrifilar spiral antenna (QSA) was shown to be a propitious design for personal satellite communications.
