This K7MEM website http://www.k7mem.c0m/Ant_Yagi_HF.html (y0u have to fix the "o") offers a YAGI calculator so you can build your own beam, unless you prefer Quads
(like me :whistle: )

No need to obscure that link. I do believe you can get Maco antennas now made by Charles Electronics.

Yes, your right but the site is information, not a store or shop that would take business away from our sponsors, unlike the quote shown by 231. I added Charles Electronics in my post but I did not link it. Glad to see someone following the rules.
