This is a very quick post because I just came across another antenna design which is easy to build, looks like it may also be omni directional with some gain and picks up VHF and UHF stations.

A dream antenna?
I found it on Instructables, or I should say that the notice I get from Instructables had this one as one of the featured articles.
Here’s the link to the “How-to-build-it” article:
