 Subject: [Antennaware] 6m design to make a yagi
After adding three 6M elements to my roof 
mounted, Hygain tribander, this by using 
Joe Hallas, W1ZR's excellent tutorial. I 
have a different matching system than his 
and I had to move the capacitively coupled 
driven element 25" forward instead of 10 
but it works pretty well. 

With that, I've decided to explore 6 
meters after almost 40 years of working 
the HF bands. I just bought a nice 6M amp 
and really should have a separate 6M beam 
and one with more than 3 elements. 

I haven't found a used one to buy locally 
and might just be better off making my 
own. Unfortunately, it won't be mounted 
more than 35' high but it will be 
something better than I have now.

I don't have the design software to design 
my own, so wondering if anyone has plans 
for a 6 element yagi that they've worked 
out, that they might share with me. 

Thanks & 73,
