OK, thanks Pete, Mark and others!

I found and read the article at  and it looks 
like I'd give up 1/2 dB for increased SWR bandwidth by 
converting a regular Yagi into an OWA. Since SWR or matching 
issues are of no concern at all to me is there any other 
good reason to use a OWA? Or is there a better article I 
should read?
