I'm in the process of getting up a 2 el quad suspended on a caternary
system with the apex around 170ft. I got the driven element up OK, but...
It appears I will have a bunch of fiberglass guy wires in the way of the
reflector loop, it's a long story. Rather than weave the loop in and out of
guy wires which will be a real pain, I am thinking about just putting up a
dipole tuned for the same freq as the reflector loop would be. After all,
a reflector is a reflector as long as it is in the same location...about 50
feet from the driven loop.
I'm not looking to squeeze the very last .1 dB out of the system and F/B
isn't important. At an average height of around 130 feet I know the thing
will be a hummer regardless.
Any ideas on this? Anybody ever do this or model it. It seems like it
