Gary I had one but not sure how much help I will be!

It was called the "Hybrid Quad" or "Hybrid Mini Quad"
and the model number began I THINK with HQ- something.

The driven element is a trap dipole in effect with
tese little screw-in rods, right after each trap for
"capacity hat" style loading. That's how they get it
SO small!

I had fun with mine on 15m and 10m. It is not much of
a performer on 20m.

The reflector is a narrow diamond shape with the same deal on each
end. If you need it I could draw a picture for you, BUT I suspect
some readers of this list wil have old QSTs and 73s from the
1970s with ADVERTISEMENTS for this little beast.

I rotated mine wit a TV rotor, and found it was a lot of fun,
but it's not gonna be able to bust pile-ups most of the time!

Enjoy it. I did! 73 de AF4K, Bry
