If you want to try a wire line, use a coil and a specific length for your specific frequency. The best and most annoying transmitting antennas for your neighbors TV reception is the wire square running around the house rooftop as the ground-plain and four wires running down from the center of the roof-tip but lifted up above the square. This is one of the most omnidirectional antennas you can make. It can also be made internal to the roofing. You may cause interference to others or you may not, but you can do some serious Dxing.
