Is it possible to use a fractal antenna for transmission of signals and not just the receiving of them? Answered

 If that is possible to do what my question is asking, how do you tune it to a certain frequency? Any information on that would be great, or any links.

What do you need to know and how does one calculate the size of a fractal anteanna if you know what frequency you are targeting?

.  As a rule of thumb, if an antenna works well for receiving, it will work just as well for transmitting; and vice versa. It may need to be able to handle more power when transmitting, but it will still be the same basic design.
.  One of the best places for antenna (and radio in general) info is ARRL.

That is somewhat correct but the tuning on a transmitting antenna if much more critical.
