Greeting all, another newbie here.
I have only moderate success with my store-bought attic mounted antenna, so I'm looking at the various DIY ideas.
I'm considering something different than the preassembled antennas I see in this forum. What if I were to string copper from stud to stud, creating the horizontal Vs employed in most designs? In my attic (upper crawlspace actually, not intended to be used for storage and filled with blown cellulose) I could create something that is ridiculously large. The more wire there is to capture the signal, the better...right? I'm sure it's never that simple, which is why I'm asking. I understand that the orientation would be fixed, but maybe that's not an issue if it's big enough.
Is uniformity and ratio important in the sizes of the various components? For instance, should the Vs all be a multiple of a particular length with a particular spacing?
Thanks for your thoughts,
