Re: Vertical Antenna Phasing
Hello All, and thanks for the messages. Sorry for the delay in
preparing this...
In summary, most respondents were either using the Comtek box with 4
veticals (4 square array) or suggested checking out the "Low Band
Dxing" book by ON4UN. Several reported using the 4 Square Array
several years ago and all have had very good results. One used a
simple "T" connector. One phased two HyTowers with a simple LC
For a few years around 1980 I used a home brew 4 Square array on 80.
It was a copy of the W1CF array described in QST, Ham Radio, etc using
the Wilkinson power divider and relays with a stack of phasing lines
(I think my wife hated it, looked like a bunch of snakes). This was an
outstanding antenna system at a time when there weren't many of its'
type around, and tons of fun breaking pile ups. 
I may try the Comtek box this time simply because it's supposed to
work with either 2 or 4 antennas and would be a cleaner installation.
To save bandwidth I won't post the detail responses. If you would like
a copy sent directly, please let me know.
