The Contest station I get to play with is at VE6SV

He has a number of Dipoles for 80 M and a 4 Square phased array for 80 M

Each plays the conditions a bit different so will select the best 
antenna to work a given station . In close the dipoles seem to work a  
better but on most long haul DX and Europe the 4 Square wins hands down 
most of the time.  

You might want to send Gord a message to get more details on his 
setup his email address is " "
