Wow! That brings back memories - I bought a used 6 element 20 meter Kirk
yagi back in the 80's ... all fiberglass including the boom. Never assembled
it. Used the elements for verticals etc.

Yes. I had a 4 element Kirk quad back in the 70s. It had blue fiber glass
spreaders. I don't remember if they had a 2 element version but they
probably did. I also had a 2 element helically wound fiberglass yagi.
(Never could get it to work very well.) The 4 element quad worked real well
while I had it up in San Antonio but when I moved I sold it to a friend in

Yesterday, while digging through a SK's barn I found some antenna parts
that aside from the dust appear to be NOS.
The boom to mast plate is stamped with Kirk Electronics, but the die cast
quad spreaders themselves are not.
I don't think the spreaders are Cubex, at least not the design that they
have sold the past few decades.
I know Kirk made some fiberglass based helical Yagi's, but did Kirk ever
make or sell a Quad antenna?
If yes might anyone have more info on it?
Thanks in advance
