Optimized for WHAT? GAIN? F/B? F/S?
You can pick up another dB of gain by lengthening the front
director equal to the length of the first director, BUT, you
will need to readjust the Gamma Match.
4L Yagi's are 'weird'. It is hard to get good F/B without
funny spacings / tuning. Gain rises very SLOWLY between
.35 and .65 WL. Bottom Line: 3L and 5L designs are much
better choices on .35 WL and .75 WL booms respectively.
5L designs can be used on shorter booms, at reduced gain.
