Thanks guys, construction is under way

I have a question, directors 3 4 5 of the first yagi then displaced by 6.5
inches come very close to some directors of the second offset yagi 6.5
inches.

Is it ok to just jump forward a bit to stop the clash ?

They come withing mm of each other

Did you find this ?

I second this. These antennas are easy to construct and there is no
matching section to fiddle with. You can also construct a pair offset on
one boom for RHCP or LHCP, even switchable just like any other satellite
yagi but then you have to start dealing with phasing harnesses. I don't
have an SWR analyzer for that task so I've just got 11 elements and 4
elements vertically polarized on 70cm and 2 meters respectively. They
worked quite well when I had a rig! I'm trying now to find one I can
afford so I can get back in the game. I miss it!
