Re: dipole HD antenna? Answered

 I noticed in Home Depot 4' x 8' sheets of metal lathe used for putting stucco on housing exteriors.  It was cellular with each cell being an elongated hexagon approx 5/8 inches in length.  The long sides of each cell had been bent at 20-30 degrees (guess) to provide a cavity based substructure for the stucco.  My thoughts went to the fractal antenna posted by williamruckman  on Jan 3, 2009.  An interior attic roof would provide an invisible and safe location similar to the entry point for a dish cable.  The lathe could be shaped virtually without limitation for tuning.  Thoughts??  VR?

Try it and see. But think about your wavelengths, the mesh should be smaller than.
