Do a Google search on NW3Z.  He has designed some monoband and dual band OWA 
yagis.  I am planning on putting up his 20M OWA which is 6 elements on a 48 
foot boom.  I used his element spacing and then optimized the yagi with YO 
6.5 keeping the spacings fixed.  It looks like it is going to be a really 
good playing 20M antenna.  BTW, he places the first director .06 wavelength 
in front of the driven element.
