Log Periodic Antennas vs. Yagi's     de   N4KG

My gut feeling is that short boom Log Periodics have less 
gain than a full size 2 element Yagi.  (Look at the spacing 
between elements that are within 10% of 1/2 wavelength
on each band.  If it is less than 0.1 wavelength, my money
is on a 2L  Yagi.    The C3 or C3S might be a better choice.

LONG  boom LP's (36 ft?)  might approach the gain of a modest
3L Yagi.

IMHO, the BIG tribanders with separate WARC and 40M beams
are a better solution.

Look at the Hy-gain TH7, TH11,  Cushcraft X9, Butternut ?, and
new Force 12  C31XR.

Force 12 has lots of interesting ways to combine interlaced Yagi's
to cover the high (and low) bands to minimize tower and mast

I have no connection with any antenna manufacturer or retailer.
