    There are a lot of sites out there to give you the information that you need. I found this one interesting:
    3 to 8 elements yagi

    There are a lot of guys here that love to build home brew antennas, too. And they love to see a project come along with posts and pics!

    Matt, here is a link to K8CC's website. K8CC Home Page

    He has a 2001 article in "ARRL's Yagi Antenna Classics" where he optimized several beam ideas for a 5 and 6 element yagi beam that you may find interesting. He provides dimensions and I did a couple of his models that look very good using Eznec.

    Here is one that I did using Eznec. I didn't add a boom, but I think the results are probably close.
