It depends on the situation. The 4SQ has a wider radiation lobe than the
Beverage, and for stations that are not in the precise direction of the
Beverage (say a difference of 30 degrees or so) the 4SQ obviously works
better. Of course the Beverage has a big advantage in terms of noise.
This is what I heard, with a pair of bi-directional Bevs 230 meters long
on a very flat, clayey and humid soil, which favors the 4SQ. It would
certainly change everything on sand or rock.
