If we feed a quad antenna from the bottom, we end up with a horizontal
polarized antenna. My question is about the support structure or the
arrangement of the wire.|
Is a BOX (x-frame) better or worse than a DIAMOND (+ frame)?
My guess is that the DIAMOND antenna will shed water better and have an less likely to have ice issues. But I could also argue the other way. This is a structural issue.
I'm MORE interested in the PERFORMANCE issue! Do you get a better horizontal pattern from a BOX or a DIAMOND?
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
