They are in a right triangle, but mine are switchable in 6 directions. I
had them all set up before and they worked great, but the winter storm took
them all down. I have 2 of them up now and going to put the 3rd one up this
weekend. I have a box I build which switches them and all I need is one
phasing line in the shack. It is amazing to watch the signal strength when
I rotate the switch through the 360 degrees. Thanks and GL on the project.
