        So I hear.  Probably designed long before good
        antenna modeling software was available.  N4KG

A 5L Yagi can yield 10.5 dBi on a 0.75 WL boom (15 ft on 6M)
with good F/B.  On 6M, a 24 ft boom represents 1.2 WL which
will realize at least 1 dB more gain with 6 or 7 elements as 
shown in the gain vs. boom length curve in the Yagi Antenna Book
by W2PV (also in the ARRL Antenna Book).  N4KG
