Yagi Directive Shortwave Antenna

1995 Milestone Ceremony recognizing the work done on the Yagi Antenna

Japan. In 1926, Professor Hidetsugu Yagi and his assistant, Shintaro Uda published on the sensitive and highly-directional antenna they designed and constructed using closely-coupled parasitic elements. The antenna, which is effective in the higher-frequency ranges, has been important for radar, television, and amateur radio

The 1924 Directional Antenna is an IEEE Milestone in Electrical Engineering and Computing.
