My first choice for a home brew yagi would be one of the OWA designs by Jim WA3FET. http://nw3z.contesting.com/ or just do a google search. I use the OWA style of designs on 10 thru 80m. Two major advantages are : simple (i.e.nothing to go wrong later) driven element design - no matching needed with the split 50 ohm feed impedance and wide gain/SWR bandwidth to cover phone and cw portions with similar performance. 73 Don VE6JY http://www.andor.net/ve6jy > > Gregg Seidl wrote: > > Wow did I get a lot of good stuff.I have decided to take the time to > > purchase a Yagi program and build my own.I will most likely build 2,4 > > element jobs so that I can mount one 30 feet lower on my tower and have a > > stack.It will have a hairpin match with stuff from Dx Engineering.Now > > another question: is there a good website or other info on how to rebuild a > > 40-2CD.I have one dismantled in the shed and would like to rebuild it.I > > always had trouble with the elements turning on the boom.Man did that > > suck!!The rest of it was fine.Small and fairly light and it worked.
