    Nice work-- I really like quads, have built several of those and delta loops over the years. It does sound as though your Q-section is too long, but if you have a good match across the band I wouldn't worry about it.

    Looks great I always enjoyed the quads, and on a two element should have great bandwidth.

    I second what RickC posted, the 75 ohm piece of coax does seem a bit long but if you have a good match it does not matter. (y)

    I really like, it JJ. It's a beauty!
    I enjoyed the 2 element Quad I had, too.
    If you have no reason to worry about rejection, perhaps turning your reflector into a director might be of some advantage to you . . .

    This is what mine was like. Yours is cleaner:
