    Nothing about matching? Either gamma, 75 Ohm coax, or tuner. I know tunning a 1/4 wave 2 element quad can be done w/o the matching, but it depends on element spacing, wire diameter/length.

    Nice beam, but I'd like to have the Penatrator to the right of the photo.

    The RCA rotor is pretty decent. I have one now and a few in the past. I've never had an issue of any kind. As long as you stay within their specs, it works great. They are just a little pricey nowadays.

    How's the MFJ 1890 working for you? I'm wanting to find a small beam setup, and have not a lot of room to work with.

    Go the 1895 route and size down rather then stretch out. I like mine with room left in the tubing for strength and shape

    Assuming the 1890 can be tuned for 11m?
