I want to make a fractal antenna to replace an old set of rabbit ears. All the guides I've seen have used a thicker wire (metal coat hangers seem popular). While I don't have any hangers, I do have an absurd amount of cat-5 that I have been harvesting whenever I need wire. If I pull a length of wire out, would the thinness of the wire restrict its ability to pickup a good signal? Thanks and pardon the relative low bar on this question.
Note: I will be untwisting them and stripping them at the appropriate junctions. I also have a 300->75ohm transformer already.
