The antenna type that we commonly refer to as a Yagi was first developed in the late 1920’s by two professors, Shintaro Uda and Hidetsugu Yagi at Tohoku University in Japan. While the antenna was mainly developed by Uda, Professor Yagi popularized the antenna design in the US and elsewhere through various conference presentations. Yagi’s name has been associated with this antenna type since that time.
