Hello,

I need some comments about wire yagi antenna. I need to do a multi elements agi beam on 10m using only wires and i want to know what about the SWR band and the performances of theses kinds of antennas. Do you have some advices and experiences.

thanks

F5IJT Sam.

Using wire, the gain and bandwidth of a yagi will be a little bit lower
than the same antenna using tubing for the elements.  And the
elements will be a little longer because they are thinner.  But it
should still be possible to cover at least half of the 10m band with
reasonable gain and SWR, depending on how many elements you
use.

www.cebik.com includes many designs for 10m, and at least one
article specifically addresses wire beams.
