The skeleton slot provide an ingenious to feed two stack yagi antennas her is my design

Step 1: Skeleton Slot Radiator

Step 2: Skeleton Slot Radiator Loop

Step 3: Tapered Matching Section

This antennas efficiently and achieve a good impedance match.

Step 4: Making the Element Holder EH789

Step 5: Main Mast Bracket MB456

Step 6: Main Boom Spacing MM123

Step 7: Element Length ER-ED4

Step 8: ‚ÄčElement Mounting to Boom

Check all dimensions for proper placement on the boom and element
