For those who enjoy antenna modeling there are a few specialized AutoEZ models 
available to do just that.  Everything is controlled via variables so it is 
easy to configure the elements of the 4-square (the dipoles) in any shape that 
fits your circumstances.  And after the geometry is set you can include a 
Comtek-like hybrid coupler as part of the model.  That lets you see the amount 
of dumped power as well as other performance metrics across an entire band.

Complete details and downloadable models available here:
