I need a directional antenna for 10 m that is less than half the size of a yagi or quad with more than about 7 dBi of gain, does anyone know if such a thing exists ?

    $\begingroup$ sure, does, but what bandwidth do you need? You can usually at most have two of "high gain", "small", "high bandwidth". $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Jan 14 at 9:32

    $\begingroup$ (e.g. is it OK if you need to use your antenna tuner whenever you change frequency?) $\endgroup$ – Marcus Müller Jan 14 at 12:28

    $\begingroup$ half the size in which dimension? (length, width, height, area, volume,...) $\endgroup$ – hotpaw2 Jan 14 at 14:14
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the replies, the bandwidth i need is 1 MHz with an SWR of less than 1.6, howver using an antenna tuner is ok. The antenna needs to be vertically polarized. In the case of a yagi it's the length of the boom and the length of the elements that's the problem and also the weight. $\endgroup$ – Andrew Jan 14 at 21:09
