    Do a search for moxon antenna plans, sounds like what you're looking for.

    This is a good idea; a Moxon will be about 70% the size of a standard 2 element Yagi but with no loss in performance---very doable with fiberglass poles and a plastic or wood hub.

    Google "The Moxon Antenna Project" for a great web site devoted to Moxons---fine antennas for small spaces/portability/etc.

    Yassou, George; You will actually have a better F/B and F/S with the Moxon than a Yagi if I recall correctly. About the same forward gain, too.

    Good luck with your build!

    I should add, this antenna requires about 30-35 mins of set-up time.
