    I dont understand something about this YP3 in a bag antenna..
    when I set up the elements and im looking at the measurements say for 6meters.
    Is the totall measurement from the center of the antenna to the tip or is it from end tip to end tip?
    6 meter measurments are as follows..
    Relfector is 58" and Driven Element is 54-1/8th and Director is 50-1/4..
    it is also saying that the reflector spaced is 54" and the director is 45"

    does this make any sense ??

    Tip to tip is 2X those element lengths. Spacing sound about right

    when you mentioned 2x.. do I understand double the lenght of those measurements or??

    a Quarterwave is about 5 ft for 6M so the Yagi elements should be halfwave , roughly TEN feet total length, tip to tip, for the DE. (director is shorter than the DE and the reflector is a little longer than the DE).
