I'm not knowlegeable about antenna technology to any extent but I think the Fractal Antenna video was interesting. However, I also think too much video time was wasted during non-informative shooting; the amount of time spent waiting for the next bit of new information detracted from the enjoyment of viewing the video.
I think it could use some dilogue or text to resolve questions about precise dimensions and specific materials as they may affect efficiency and quality of reception. Details such as diameter/material of wire, radius of bends, possibility of "stacked" elements of varying lengths, spacing & shielding necessary between stacked elements. Also, addressing any issues of signal boosting if applicable would be helpful.
