Comment: Now that you have an amateur/ham radio license, you can focus on the one factor that determines how well your signal reaches others--namely, your antenna. With all the advertising claims and promotions surrounding antennas,it may be difficult to shift fact from fiction when it comes to selecting the wires that launch your signals.
Onno (VK6FLAB) takes some of the guesswork and confusion out of antenna selection in this well-organized and thoughtful podcast focusing on the selection criteria for your antennas. Briefly speaking, Onno says there are three important factors which will determine the type of antenna you need: cost, construction, and performance. At each stage of this package, there are things you can do to improve what you've made or bought. For Onno, "The best antenna depends on the questions you ask...Ask better questions, get a better antenna."
