Just talked to a guy using MFJ 1793 verticals in a four square. He told me
that he knows of several others doing the same thing. I heard the array
and it sounded impressive, and the guy who built it is very happy with it.
He's using 72' spacing. Says that works better. Also, he was using 8
radials under each vertical and a Comtek switch/phase system.

Does anyone have real world experience with arrays of shortened
verticals? I'm familiar with the recent articles on top
loaded hanging wire arrays, but I'm wondering about commercial
80m and/or 160m loaded verticals, like the GAP and the
Gladiator. Anybody tried a four square with the Gladiators, for
