 ```Yes, I meant they are in an equilateral triangle. Had a brain fart. Lots of postings on this subject, but nobody has yet answered my original question. I'll post it again. I have 2 stubs, separtated by a 1/4 wave phasing line on my single vertical. Will these stubs affect the phasing of the verticals. That was what I was originally asking.
