Hi. I have a couple of questions in regards to vhf yagi - 3 element.
When the reflector is supposed to be a total of 47", and I go through a wooden boom, is the reflecter element supposed to be changed in total length to compensate going through a 1.5" boom? What I mean is, if I go through this wood, do I have add the 1.5" to length? I keep thinking the wood would take out the radiance and I need to make each side of boom equal 23.5" for element.
Also, 1 more question, :-) trying to learn as much as I can since this is new to me. Is there any advantage of a herringbone pattern to a 3 or 4 element Yagi? For narrowing the beam width. Just curious to know. Thank you for any help that might come along. its appreciated.
