Interesting results. I wondered how that works if only one pair of sticks is connected, but the principle how a Yagi works is quite ingenious (after googling it of course).
I saw people make such antenas for SOTA activities and portable use out from piano or guitar strings. I also saw a portable Yagi on WIMO.com for SOTA but its over 100. I got a fiberglas heavy duty pole with 6m height, such a yagi would come in handy to pickup distant stations on simplex.
I may research a bit on how to use guitar wires for that as I am a guitar player and those wires are really form stable.

Thanks for sharing this diy project
