That was the original design for this antenna: two 
rectangular loops with the cross wire phasing. Indeed, 
this configuration is better than the double delta loops. 
We did not have the necessary supports at TX3A, so we 
decided on the delta configuration instead, which only 
needed two poles and was supposed to work almost as well.
