/* This program 'first' has a go at a first attempt of a yagi. It uses
as a basis, the DL6WU Yagis, which are strictly only  okay for 10 or more
elements, but this program takes liberties and calculates for any size of
dipole. 

The program 'first' disscussed in an article sent to RadCom, used a much
worst method, by trying to extend a 33 ele beam form the ARRL handbook in
both directions. I've abandoned this algorithm (if you could call it an   
algorithm) in faviour of the DL6WU designs.
