W6OHK Superquad Antenna
The driven element of this unique antenna was like a double-Z quad (like a swastika). It functioned on 40-meters as two 40-meter dipoles folded over and 90-degrees out of phase. The antenna contained two half-wave antennas on 15-meters that were 90-degrees out-of-phase and spaced a half-wave apart.
