[Antennaware] Pennant

K6SE recommended pairs - or even four - of point fed pennants 
hung from a common central pole as a useful configuration.  I 
believe each one had a common transformer and BOTH SIDES of the 
coaxes were switched (e.g., DPDT relays in a plastic box).  

If attempting this configuration, I would strongly recommend a 
good common mode choke between the pennant and switch and another 
one on the feedline after the switch.
