A basic, no frills explanation of the theory, construction, and use of cubical quad antennas from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ).  Although cubical quads can be built for the HF Amateur Radio bands, most radio amateurs seem to prefer such antennas for the VHF/UHF bands where the dimensions, materials, build time are less than similar antennas for HF.  Dave does an excellent job of introducing this versatile antenna and shows you how to build one for your home shack.  If you need an antenna for serious VHF/UHF DX or to just reach a fringe repeater site in your area, then the cubical quad may be the best antenna for you.
