Did you look at the pattern? A 4SQ is not that directive. If you are off by
30 degrees you may lose a dB of gain.

What´s the width angle of a single antenna in a 4SQ system?
In USA I have W6 at 310 deg and W1 at 350 deg.
In Europe I have:
- EI, GI, GM at 25 deg
- CT, F, DL, EA, PA, EA8, UA1 at 35 deg
- OE, OK, HA, OM, UA3 at 40 deg
- 6W, 5T, I, E7, 4O, YU, UA4 at 45 deg
- LZ, SV, UA6 at 50 deg
- 5N, TT, SU, YI, SV9, SV5, TA, at 55 deg
Classic setup will be antennas at 45, 135, 225 and 315
But this will be the best positions from me? For Europe 45 degrees will be
OK, but not sure about 315 degrees for USA
If I change USA antenna at 325 deg, I don´t think Europe at 55 degrees will
be the best
What would you do in my situation?
Thanks in advance
