Default recommended antenna building sites?

I've searched around and seen some pretty cruddy sites and other nice ones. Any recommendations on a good site(s) to learn more about building antennas? I have an old TV HF/VHF antenna that I'd like to turn into "a" or "several" yagis, j-poles or something.

thanks.

If you are a member of the ARRL there are several down loadable articles on making VHF yagis out of old TV antennas.

This month's QST supposedly has a great article on building a 4-element yagi for 2M. Bruce was going to send me the details.
