I too am always looking for ideas as I get older and know downsizing is
sooner rather than later forcing me to move and shed my M2 rotatable pair.
I've been slowly working on building double Moxon's for 440 and 2 meters
both using #6 copper wire and trying to measure very carefully. Another list
serve participant suggested I tried these as they have worked well for him
and better than other stationary antennas he has tried. Next up for me when
I have time is to try your Quadrifilars and I have another article or two on
construction suggestions. My one big question is how did you get the #6 wire
to solder? I use a gun and inevitably the joint breaks. What's your secret?
