Subject: [amsat-bb] Folded Dipole Dimensions

I'm trying to home-brew a pair of crossed yagis; one for 2 meters and one
for 70cm but I need help with the dimensions.
I want to use folded dipoles for the driven elements.
What size should they be to be resonant at:
1.  145.800 MHz
2. 435.000 MHz

Light travels faster than sound...  This is why some people appear bright
until you hear them speak.
