I agree with Norm. I had a Cubex four element quad up for six years, fed
at the bottom, and noticed no problems. A great antenna, by the way, but
no fun to fix when the wires start breaking. I replaced it with a yagi
which has a bit less gain gut does the job and should be
maintenance-free, I hope.
If you go with the quad, use copperweld wire for longevity. Mine was
just tinned copper.
