a quad loop single element on the flat side with act omnidirectional crazy but its true
Thanks, that's what I thought, just wasn't too sure.
I built a single element quad with shorter spreaders and smaller dimensions. I used nearly the same length of conductor around the quad, but pulled in like a Maltese cross so it could be made smaller. It tuned out with good SWR, and I supported it parallel to the ground about 4' up from the earth and talked omni with it while testing it. I never built a reflector nor director to turn it into a beam, although that was the intention. Perhaps I can drag it out, photograph it, and post it if anyone wants to see it.
