I highly recommend Dave Leason's book
Do not know if it is still in print or not...
He published it when he held W6QHS, he is now W6NL
The title is Physical Design of Yagi Antennas...
Also - a really cool software program for designing yagis is YO by
K6STI. I have spent way too many hours playing with it - it is fun to
watch it optimize different designs.
But the best resource of all, is Tower Talk, just ask the rats!
