Short data for the Yagi at the begin, in the middle part and at the end of the band

Plot with the NEC-II-reference of YO7.2 by K6STI

The meaning of the data :

Frequency, gain, F/R, radiation resistance (impedance), SWR and loss against a theoretical defined maximum- gain-Yagi with the given boomlength. Remember that this gain is only available with very low impedance and extrem low bandwidth!

Here a report of Jean-Jaques, ON7EQ, with hints for tuning the antenna:
 

At present building an array of 2x  6 ele for 2m , according to your design attached. I was particularly charmed by the very clean 'backlobes'  of the antenna, while offering a very high forward gain despite the short boom.  Maybe not the best antenna for contesting (deaf in the back), but good for EME / MS !

 
Off course, this at the cost of a very narrowband  design ...
 
I have constructed all with utmost precision, using 10mm elements with KONNI  insulators on a 20x20 boom.
 
Found antenna resonating @ 145.0 MHz instead of 144.350 about (according to your info and reproducing it in EZNEC).
 
I hereby just wanted to attract the attention of fellow hams that the resonance frequency can be smoothly changed by finetuning the lenght of D2 (not the radiator !) . This has the most effect on frequency, while the SWR stays 1:1 @ resonance. So my hint is to make D2 perhaps 3mm longer on both sides of element, and then file tips to adjust towards 144.350.
