There is a suggestion to run the dumped power from a hybrid-fed 4-square into a (low) dipole rather than the usual dummy load. Has anyone tried that? How did it work?
I would be worried that a reactive termination would screw up the 4-sqr pattern. And not to mention having another resonant antenna near the 4-sqr verticals, even if cross-polarized.
I also have <1% dumped power at optimum on my 4-sqr, so it seems that it really wouldn't add much high-angle fill-in?
