If you're unable to view this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/FbYfShh-OAU. This video by Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) provides an excellent tutorial on the design parameters of a three-element parasitic array HF antenna , known as a Yagi Antenna .  Stan provides all of the necessary formulas for the reflector, director, and driven elements of this antenna. If you're considering upgrading the performance of your amateur radio station , a simple yagi antenna may be a cost-efficient and effective way to add more "punch" to your signal.  You can either homebrew your yagi or opt for a commercially available yagi.  Of course, you'll probably need a modest tower and a rotator to direct your signal to the desired areas.  This would entail a consideable expense, especially if you want a yagi for the lower HF bands (80 to 20 meters).  However, a three-element yagi for 10 meters would be within most budgets and would require a
