Example 12 Element UHF (CH 14 - 51)
Here is a design for a 10 director Yagi cut for the UHF band (CH 14 - 51).
Build this using a 1X2 or 1X4 wood boom and elements cut from scrap 12, 10 or 8 gauge copper wire.
I've got a functional version of this in my attic, reliably receiving KBTC (PBS) over a one-edge path.
Rather than the 1/2 wave coax balun, I just soldered a store bought balun on and ran RG-6 from there.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
