TRIVIA ANSWER
Answer: "Yagi" is the shortened name for a "Yagi-Uda Antenna". In 1926, Shintaro Uda of Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, with the collaboration of Hidetsugu Yagi developed the antenna. Mr. Yagi published the first English-language article about it in 1928 so his name got associated with it, though he was always quick to credit Mr. Uda.
