I was thinking of suspending 2 40m diamond-configuration quad loops from the
top of an 80'  steel scaffold-pole mast.

Option 1 is put a  horizontal 20' length of timber with central pivot at the
top of the mast, thus spacing the loops correctly, and allowing them to be
'walked around' to the desired direction.

Option 2 is to mount the tops of both loops on insulators at the top of the
mast, and pull the sides and bottoms of the loops away from the mast,

What are the pros and cons of both options, and which do you prefer for best
DX performance ?
