Japanese intelligence officers did not even recognise that Yagi was a Japanese name in this context.

No portion can be reproduced except by permission of the author. The above description is the basic idea of what is going on with the Yagi-Uda antenna.

How the antenna works.

Yagi Antfnas Design Parameters. The net effect of these two waves, when added bottom, leftis almost complete cancellation. This was the preface and notice in advance for a series of 11 papers with the same title by Uda between — on the antenna.

Thus the antenna radiates a unidirectional beam of radio waves from the front director end of the antenna. However using the above kinds of iterative analysis one can calculate the performance of a given a set of parameters and adjust them to optimize the gain perhaps subject to some constraints. One way of thinking about the operation of such an antenna is to consider a parasitic element to be a normal dipole element of finite diameter fed at its centre, with a short circuit across its feed point.

There are no simple formulas for designing Yagi—Uda antennas due to the complex relationships between physical parameters such as.

This feed antenna is often altered in size to make it resonant in the presence of the parasitic elements typically, 0. It is simple to construct and has a high gaintypically greater than 10 dB. In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of the Yagi-Uda antenna.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Similarly, the gain for this Yagi antenna can be plotted antenaa a function of director spacings, or as a function of the number of directors used. The antenna was invented in by Shintaro Uda of Tohoku Imperial UniversityJapan[5] with a lesser role played by his colleague Hidetsugu Yagi.

The Yagi-Uda Antenna – Yagi Antennas

Due to the differences in the elements’ lengths Z 11 and Z 22 have a substantially different reactive component. We can also solve for the voltage V 1 at the feedpoint of the driven element using the earlier equation:. Given the associated costs of erecting an antenna and rotor system above a tower, the combination of antennas for jagi-uda amateur bands in one unit is a very practical solution.

TV antennas are still a major application of the Yagi antenna. The Atenas antenna or Yagi Antenna is one of the most brilliant antenna designs. The Yagi—Uda array in its basic form has very narrow bandwidth, 2—3 percent of the centre frequency.

Electronics industry in Japan.

Yagi–Uda antenna

Hence, even though the antenna is often called a Yagi antenna, Uda probably invented it. Retrieved 18 September The ratio of voltage to current at this point is the driving point impedance Z dp of the 2-element Yagi:. Popular Mechanicspp. The waves in the reverse direction interfere destructivelycancelling out, so the signal strength radiated in the wntenas direction is small.


The gain increases with the number of parasitic elements used.

Freq. [MHz]

In yagi-ua, that would be the case were we to construct a phased array with rather closely spaced elements all driven by voltages in phase, as we posited.

Such a complete exact analysis considering all of the interactions mentioned is rather overwhelming, and approximations are inevitable on the path to finding a usable antenna. This element is important in determining the front-to-back ratio of the antenna. As is well known in transmission line theory, a short circuit reflects all of the incident power degrees out of phase.

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. Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by a length SDi. However, Yagi always acknowledged Uda’s principal contribution to the design, and the proper name for the antenna is, as above, the Yagi—Uda antenna or array.

Adding an additional director always increases the gain; however, the gain in directivity decreases as the number of elements gets larger.

Yagi—Uda antennas used for amateur radio are sometimes designed to operate on multiple bands.
