The package I found on the front porch.

It has arrived. AU$350 from Aussie Ebay.
Please note: the mounting screws on the elements & boom were not done up tight. The yagi was loosely assembled for the photo shoot. That is why some of the elements look to slope down.

The matching components.

The boom came in 3 sections. All securing holes come pre-tapped, ready for the screws to be inserted.
