The Yagi-Uda antenna was invented in 1926 by Shintaro Uda
of Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, with the collaboration of Hidetsugu Yagi,
also of Tohoku University
. Yagi published the first
English-language article on the antenna in 1928 and it came to be associated
with his name. However, Yagi always acknowledged Uda's principal contribution
to the design, and the proper name for the antenna is, as above, the Yagi-Uda
antenna (or array).
