Word of the Day (Yagi Antenna): What is a Yagi Antenna?

Invented in 1926 by Shintaro Uda and Hidetsugu Yagi of Japan, the Yagi-Uda, most often shortened to “Yagi,” refers to a type of directional antenna with a single driven element connected to its feedline in the middle, multiple parallel elements (directors) in a line, and a reflector. A boom supports the antenna structure.  

DX Engineering manufacturers a number of Yagis, including its Skylark™ Dual-Band Yagi Antenna covering 17 and 12 meters, and the Skyhawk™ Tri-Band Yagi Antenna for 20, 15 and 10 meters. DX Engineering also offers HF and VHF directional antennas from leading manufacturers including OptiBeam and Eantenna.
