The W5HVV quad weighed in at 140 pounds with all that metal angle iron.  I
lost it 2 years later in a tornado.  Never did find even a trace of it.
Antenna Mart of GA sold the same design as the strieble (K4DLI) quad for
several years before Bill KC4UZ passed away

Rod W5HVV (later N5HV) operated the CQ 160 several years and passed away far
too young.
