Hi,
Does anyone have a simple design for a good 2m 4 elemnt yagi with a boom shorter than 5 feet?
I have a 7 element desing that works very nice if any one needs it.
Thanks

For short boom antennas you might want to consider using a HB9CV design. These are short boom 2 element (both are driven) beam antennas.

Some typical dimensions for a 2m antenna would be a boom length of around 1 foot, Additional elements could be added to increase gain but with the 2 element you should have around 6 to 8 dBi of gain and front to back ration of around 20dB.

I use an HB9CCV design for 6 meters BTW and have had very good results with it.

Take a look at http://www.qsl.net/dk7zb/start1.htm. You will find many good designs for 4 to 18 elements, english language.

Dont bother with http://www.qsl.net/dk7zb/start1.htm. it is useless. All that is there is one of those stupid automated / irritating "error" messages.
