	While salt water is definitely good for verticals, but it doesn't 
help horizontally polarized antennas like Yagis.  For the low bands 
(160/80) where construction of large Yagis is a mechanical challenge, 
a 4SQ is hard to beat.  However for the higher bands, it's difficult 
for a vertical array's gain to compete with the ground gain and 
stacking gain of a Yagi stack.  An ideal solution might be a 
combination of both (4SQs for 80/160 and Yagi stacks for 40-10).
