I wonder why anyone bothers with a 80 meter yagi, especially a 
linear loaded yagi, when it is so simple just to install a couple 
reversible wire beams or phased arrays. The only case I can see 
where it is worth it is the case where you simply do not have the 
room for other antennas.

If you spent the money for an 80 meter yagi and spent it on wire 
and tower, you'd absolutely smoke any two or three element yagi 
from the same location. The only catch is you'd need a bit more 
room for ropes.
