    Download the YagiMax suite from the downloads section of this site. Then enter the data and you will get information on gain, pattern (both E and H), what dimensions for gamma matching, etc.

    I got the same thing.
    After much fiddling with it, I was able to extract all the files (one at a time!) from the ZIP, but I cant be sure they are all truely intact.

    Something is definitely screwy with that file.

    I was able to successfully extract YagiMax files, and YagiMax ran ok - BUT it's a DOS program. The gentleman asked about a windows based Yagi program.

    There is one out there I've used, but darn if I can remembe what it is just now. Seems like there is another DOS based program that was a bit better than YagiMax also - the one I used most. Gotta go back and do some digging when I get a chance.

    Yagi For Windows is the name of the program that comes with the
    ARRL antenna book CD Rom. It has a few "Quirks". for instance,

    I inputted the info on the Cushcraft 10 element yagi in the PDF and the thing crashed with an overflow error.
