Tower Model

    Is it purely decorative or is it a working set-top antenna?

    It’s purely decorative. However if the antenna was actually functional at that scale it would be in the microwave band. I’ve forgotten how long the driven element is/was so I’m not entirely sure what frequency the antenna would be resonant at. I’m not sure how effective it would be, since I didn’t use any type of antenna design theory to design/build it.

    I think this radio antenna tutorial will be helpfull for your project. This antena looks good but i think there is much more to work.

    Good luck!
