[TowerTalk] 4 square multiband wire array: 40 to 10 mtrs

Hi all,

I am currently investigating the possibilities of building a 4 square 
covering multiple bands. The idea is to use 4 masts as 1/4 quarter-wave 
verticals on 40, with ropes going from there to the central point of the 
square. These ropes could serve as a support for wire verticals for each 
of the other bands (i.e. 20, 15, 10), which would consequently form 3 
additional 4 squares within the 40 meter system. 

I believe something like that is mentioned in ON4UN's book, where he 
points out that the elements of the bands not in use need to be grounded 
at the feedpoint. Has anyone actually tried something like this? How did 
the system perform? If there are no real life experiences - can this 
system work from a theoretical point of view?

Would be very grateful for any input.

Pse respond directly as I do not subscribe this group.

Tnx in advance -
