All Yagis in 28-Ohm-Technology, elements mounted with polyamid-clamps (Konni) or similar and 10, 8 or 6mm Diameter. Electrical details on the pages you see above, plots with "YO" from K6STI and "EZNEC +4" from W7ELThe elements have 10 mm, 8 mm or 6 mm diameter, because this is very uncritical and you get the expected datas! For the tuning let the radiator 2mm longer and cut for best SWR at 432 MHz. If the minimum is worse than 1.3 you should try to change the place of D1 +/-5mm. If you have a spectrum analyzer you can follow that rule: Making D1 shorter raises the resistance of the radiator, making it longer the resistance will drop down. Greater changes in the length of D1 as +/- 1mm will cause another radiator length! I have redesigned some Yagis (12/2003) with "EZNEC", because the "cut-off"-frequency was very close to 433 MHz, now the antennas have 0,05-0,1dB less gain, but the design is not so critical and the bandwidth is greater. |

Mounting of elements With these clamps the 8mm-elements are mounted isolated 2-3mm above the boom. The screw has 3mm and is stainless steel. The screw and the electrical contact to the boom has no influence to the length of the element. |

Use a good cable with a good braid for high screening effectiveness! |
