Home Brew antenna question.

A question for antenna home brew experts.

WA5VJB has some great designs for easy build "cheap yagi's",  problem is they are optimised for the wrong end of the band for satellite use.

The 70cms version is designed for 432MHz
If I scale the element lengths and spacings by 432/436 will that move the antenna up in frequency to 436

Appreciate that its probably academic for receive, but it significant for transmitting.
