Yagi Antenna Design Software

I have built several Yagi Antennas using this software, each antenna has been successful.

I simply used scrap #12 or #10 gauge copper wire, scrap 1X4 or 1X2 lumber and a 300/75Ω matching transformer. A 10 director antenna cut for UHF CH 27 is in service in my attic, providing reliable reception of a weak 1 edge path station.

The software allows for use of insulated and non-insulated boom material, varied diameter of element material and other user input.
