    OK going through some USN designs of long ago and came across a HF Quadrant Antenna that covers all the HF bands. But what in the Devil are the antennas and how would they be fed? Looks like some kind of Conical design?

    looks like a series of cage dipoles for different bands, and orientation (North/south-East/West) to me. probably swithched and fed individually...
    with the higher frequency bands at the lower height I would think that they took in consideration the frequency spacing, directivity and takeoff angle of the signals...

    Cage dipoles. It appears the design goal is full HF coverage in the minimal rectangular real-estate.

    I've never seen this configuration in my navy travels.

    Same as DUGA 2 or 3

    I was referring to method of feeding cage dipoles.
