I would like to share with you a compact 4 Element Yagi-Uda antenna design for 2 meter amateur radio band. This antenna has great front-to-back ratio and is optimized for wide range of frequency, a bargain for its compact design (about 76 centimeter long).
Although this antenna has almost the same gain as any simple 3 element yagi antenna (7-8dBi), this design has a significantly improved Front-to-Back ratio which is great for blanking noises and foxhunting purposes

Please leave comments if you have sucessfully built this antenna. I would like to hear your experiences.
