I said I didn't fancy carrying a 10el yagi around the Aussie scrub, well I constructed a 12el 23cm Yagi to carry around Aussie peaks with little to no scrub. The design is a DL6WU for 1296 MHz using VK5DJs Yagi Calculator.
The boom is 18 x 18 mm Wester Red Cedar, reflector and director elements are 3.1 mm dia aluminum rod, driven element is 2 mm copper wire and the balun is RG316. I will post construction details on my blog in the next day or so.
