Re a 17ele Tonna, mine became a zero element after it went through the next doors bathroom window in 1982..... and I was lowering the mast prior to moving house (for the benefit of G3XDY it was Tranmere Grove) ! when a tensioned guy snapped and the mast went sideways.

Ages ago I had aTonna 17e for 2m, this had a triple stacked reflector and iirc yes all three were counted. So 15e really.

Interestingly, after it was pointed out to me I did count elements. Seems this 28 "element"

yagi turns out to be a 21 element, 19 directors, radiator and reflector.

 

Apparently, 8 reflectors stacked count as individual elements.

 

What if it was a solid plate at the back? 21 element yagi then?

 

Seems a bit of a rip-off but what do I know, hi.  

 

Are all commercial antenna misrepresented this way? Is it the norm?
