I'm just drilled the boom for a FO19 xpol yagi - I've spent the rest
of the afternoon cutting elements on the back deck.  30C and humid
in FN45fl!

I'm mounting the elements about 3mm above a 20mm (3/4 inch) square boom.
I'm guessing about a 2.5 mm boom correction factor.  Anyone on the 
amsat-bb have a more exact boom correction factor?
