I am using 16AWG Magnet Wire to create a 15 element Yagi Antenna for the 2.4ghz range which should theoretically give me a little over 15db gain. The magnet wire I am using has an enamel coating on it.
Do I need to remove the enamel coating in order for the antenna to work? Of course I am going to remove it at the place where I solder the coax cable on but do I need to do it for all the directors and the reflector?
How much will this affect the quality of the signal gained?
