Would you please.  Particularly of the feed arrangement.  I was just 
fascinated by them.  I've tried a couple of attempts to CP a quad (all not 
very successful) and would like to see how someone pulled it off.  After 
looking at the web site I got out my data for "the large quad"  (lots of 
elements in a single plane) and thought thats how they might have done it 
BUT the driven element doesnt look oversized.  It looks like they just fed 
it differently.

Right now I've got for the LEO birds two 18 foot quagis that on each have 
elements for each band (144 and 436) at 90 degrees to each other and have 
worked that pretty succesfully (ie each Quagi works as its single band copy 
works).  Its overkill but I can access the birds with not a lot of power and 
hear everything thats there.  I really dont need a new 144 or 436 set up for 
thehigh orbit birds as each has a large array but I would love to play with 
the quad....

Let me know when you get them...Thanks again.
