Re: 435 offset yagi phasing



Andrew,
Yes that is correct with one exception that a 50 ohm, 1/2 wave section needs 
to be inserted for the opposite rotation in one antenna. This is switched in 
and out with a coax switch or relay. The 1/4 wave sections do the matching 
and both offer the same delay so there is no phase difference to the 
antennas. As the antennas are 1/4 wave offset one leads by 90 degrees. 
adding a 180 degree delay will cause that antenna to lag by 90 degrees and 
hence the opposite rotation.

Good luck with the project. Learning by doing is the best way!
