If you want these 4 wires to work as a V beam, you must feed only
two adjacent wires at a time.
Switching can easily be done with two single pole double throw relays.
Connect the common side of each relay to the feedline.
Connect wires 1 and 3 to the left relay.
Connect wires 2 and 4 to the right relay.
The resulting 4 combinations are:
1 and 2 left V
3 and 2 center V
3 and 4 right V
1 and 4 (two wires with 150 degree spacing...like a "bent" longwire)
