It's been a long time since I've heard anyone mention a fractal antenna! I thought that nonsense was dead. Good luck with it!
If you can go back several years through the "rec.radio.amateur.antenna" use group, you should find more than you'd ever want to know about fractal antenna theory, but very little on making one that works. There's a very good reason for that, I think you'll understand much better after reading the whole mess. I wouldn't touch that one with ~your~ ten foot pole...

No, you certainly don't need to. That's a good thing too, since no one can.
