The Yagi—Uda array in its basic form has very narrow bandwidth, 2—3 percent of the centre frequency. Retrieved 11 September This leads to the array being designated as a travelling wave antenna.

Geometry of Yagi-Uda antenna. We model element number j as having a feedpoint at the centre with a voltage V j and a current I j flowing into it. Given the associated costs of erecting an antenna and rotor system above a tower, the combination of antennas for three amateur bands in one unit is a very practical solution.

The work was presented for the first time in English by Yagi who was either Uda’s professor or colleague, my sources are conflictingwho went to America and gave the first English talks on the antenna, which led to its widespread use.

Yagi–Uda antenna

An example of a Yagi-Uda antenna is shown below. The gain as a function of the separation is shown in Figure 2. The element to the left of the feed element in Figure 1 is the reflector.

As alluded to in the sntenas paragraph, the lengths of the directors are typically less than the resonant length, which encourages wave propagation in the direction of the directors. You are probably familiar with this antenna, as they sit on top of roofs everywhere.


In the next section on Yagis, I’ll go further into the design of Yagi-Uda antennas. The case of a Yagi—Uda array using just a driven element and a director is illustrated in the accompanying diagram taking all of these effects into account.

A picture of Professor Yagi with a Yagi-Uda antenna is shown below. While the above qualitative explanation is useful for understanding how parasitic elements can enhance the driven elements’ radiation in one direction at the expense of the other, the assumptions used are quite inaccurate.

The elements are given the correct lengths and spacings so that the radio waves radiated by the driven element and those re-radiated by the parasitic elements all arrive at the front of the antenna in-phase, so they superpose and add, increasing signal strength in the forward direction.

However these elements are not driven as such but receive their energy from the field created by the driven element, so we will find almost the opposite to be true. Antenaas questioned, the technician said it was an antenna named after a Japanese professor. Wntenas an additional director always increases the gain; however, the gain in directivity decreases as the number of elements gets larger.

In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of the Yagi-Uda antenna. The wave yagi-ud by the driven element green propagates in both the forward and reverse directions as well as other directions, not shown. The current distribution along a real antenna element is only approximately given by the usual assumption of a classical standing wave, requiring a solution of Hallen’s integral equation taking into account the other conductors.


Yagi–Uda antenna – Wikipedia

The Yagi antenna consists of a single ‘feed’ or ‘driven’ element, typically a dipole or a folded dipole antenna. The waves in the reverse direction interfere destructivelycancelling out, so the signal strength radiated in the reverse direction is small.

The work was originally done by Shintaro Uda, but published in Japanese. Japanese intelligence officers did not even recognise that Yagi was a Japanese name in this context.

We can also solve for anhenas voltage V 1 at the feedpoint of the driven element using the earlier equation:. The length of the feed element is given in Figure 1 as F. Therefore, the forward waves add together, xntenas interference enhancing the power in that direction, while the backward waves partially cancel each other destructive interferencethereby reducing the power emitted in that direction.

In other words, the crest of the forward wave from the reflector element reaches the driven element just as the crest of the wave is emitted from that element. That is, they reradiate power which they receive from the driven element they also interact with each other.
