Re: Quad band antenna?

Diamond makes the CR8900A quad-band antenna. I dont know if they are still a production item, but I see there are some on Amazon. I have one that I am not using if someone wants to test drive it.

Ok, now that I’m fired up about 6m I also am looking at antenna options.

I don’t see any quad band solutions. If you’re excluding beams of various descriptions, the best solution a short search came up with for me was something along the lines of:
Diamond CP610 dual band 10m/6m
Whatever your choice is for dual band 2m/70cm (e.g. Comet GP-1, GP-3, GP-6 and the equivalent Diamond and Hustler entrants)
separate feedlines for the antennas that connect to a diplexer to sort it out into 6m&10m/2m&70cm
But I am pondering some sort of low gain beam, aimed more or less WNW from my place. Two element Yagi or a Moxon or even a quarter wave vertical with a reflector offset to the side.
