 ```The 'right triangle' system utilizes two verticals per selected direction with the third 'floating'. The 'equilateral triangle' system uses all three verticals simultaneously, but requires much more coax for phasing and a more complex switching system, one that cannot be done over the coax like the 'right angle' system.
