X shaped antennae in S Korea

Being a thick gunner I wondered if any of you clever chaps can tell me what an x shaped antennae for a VHF radio that we saw in S Korea might have been. It seemed very efficient indeed. Keen to know as it worked very well with a uk raven radio and gave far better range.

The antenna could have been a full wave rhombic which is a very efficient and effective Ae.
A full wave rhombic would be a fairly large affair, I'm guessing the OP saw it on a mast of some sort. Had it been a Quad, which I think is most likely, the supporting arms are usually all people see as the actual wire elements are so thin.
Yes I am old enough to remember the old BBC vhf "X", I put a few up in the early days, they were nothing special in performance though so I can't see why anyone would reproduce them for radio use.
