Another ten-element triband Yagi to consider is the Bencher Skyhawk.
It's got the same 3-3-4 element array as the other two you mentioned. It
may be a bit cheaper; I haven't looked at list prices for any of these Yagis
recently. I've had my Bencher on the air since 2001 and think it's an
effective, relatively compact tribander.
