Another excellent video tutorial from Peter Parker (VK3YE).  This time, Peter builds a 144 MHz, 4-element yagi antenna.  The emphasis in this video is on dimensions and proper spacing of antenna elements.  This antenna is suitable for a variety of amateur radio uses, including portable/emergency operations, 2-meter SSB, and DX-peditions.  As configured by Peter, the antenna is horizontally polarized. You could add a gamma match to provide a bit more spectrum.
