I have a weather radio that get's poor reception so I'd like to
extend and/or complement the telescopic indoor antenna with an
external antenna. I have a 17 foot piece of insulated #12 copper
wire I'd like to use. 1st question; does it need to be bare wire?
The entire length? By the time I feed outside, that's about 2 feet horizontal. Another 4.5 feet vertical to the eaves where I can turn
and go horizontal for another "x" feet, up to 20 feet. Full
wavelength for a frequency of 162.5 MHz is exactly 6 feet
(remainder less than an inch), so how long should I make "x" above?
I cannot extend the vertical portion longer than 4.5 feet ...
