In my continuing search for some attic antenna ideas, I came across a horizontal loop where each side was pulled in resulting in a 4 pointed star shape.

I didn't bookmark the webpage and I can't find it again despite my most creative searching.  Anyone seen some reference info on this design?

Thanks,
Kevin

That was on the web page of the late W4RNL here:

Some of the hex beams are almost a star shape...

The hex beams are two discrete elements- a driven element and a reflector.
