thanks. though that one looks pretty challenging and expensive to build. know of any cheap and easy ones? I live in an apartment without a work bench and fancy tools. I have a Black N Decker version of a Dremal tool and drill and all the basic stuff.
Eric, let me know if these work for you, there used to be a ton of these homebrew antenna projects on the net but the good detailed websites have obviously dried up, I'll keep looking though, let me know when one works for you.
