I am in the beginning stages of a major antenna overhaul here. I already have 
(but not installed) a Tri-Ex LM-470D tower and I am trying to decide what to 
put on top of it. Recently I came across a Cush Craft 2 element 40 meter beam 
so I brought it home to roost. Now I want to decide what to use for 20 thru 10 
meters. I really like quads. I had an old HyGain quad many years ago which 
should have given me or anyone who owned one a bad taste for them but I guess 
the years have been kind. Now I would like to use a quad again. However I think 
the vertical spacing between the 2 element 40 and a quad on the same mast would 
be so great that I wouldn't want to try it. So I have given some thought to 
building a 2 element quad on the same boom as the 2 element 40. I can beef the 
boom up to a 3" boom if necessary. I just want to know if someone has done this 
before and with what results.

Thanks in advance,
