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 a "bent" longwire)
