The article was "Quads vs. Yagis Revisited" by N6NB (Dr. Wayne Overbeck) 
in Ham Radio, May 1979, pages 12 through 21 makes just those types of 
measurements.  Since I just happen to be "up north" and have access to 
what old HR magazines I had, including the issue in question, I will 
bring it south with me on Sunday evening.  You are welcome to a copy 
of the article if you would like.
