I would say that it's as simple as multiplying the actual wavelength of the 
frequency you are making the antenna for, with the velocity factor of the 
cable. It's the length of the braid on the cable that's important.

More info on cross-phasing of yagis can be found on DK7ZB, Martin Steyer's

Good luck
