Triband Wire Yagi
Markus Hansen, VE7CA describes how to build and deploy a triband wire yagi with good performance numbers. This beam antenna is a 6 wire antenna which covers 10, 15 & 20 meters and is 2 elements per band. This could be deployed in the field for portable ops or permanently installed at a home station.
Try it out and get building!
