Thanks to all who replied.  The consensus is that it should  work.  The 
apex of the quad is around 175 feet and the bottom is around 75  feet.
Two ideas/questions:
First, my gut feeling is the dipole should be at the average height  of 
loop around 125 feet, which will be in a slightly inverted Vee form....lots  of 
room to stretch out the ends.  Maybe a little higher because of the  Vee.
Second, should the wire be a standard dipole, insulated in the  middle?  Or 
should it be one long wire 1/2 on one side of the Vee and half  on the 
other with no insulator in the middle?  My guess is it won't make a  difference.
