Hello,
I purchased a windom antenna and it has a 180' leg and 90' leg.
Can I bend the legs around my house and still have the antenna perform low end will be approx 20' off the ground feed point will be 40' off the ground, can I do this without affecting the antenna to much
Thank You

Too many variables to calculate. I've never seen someone model the wiring of an entire house.

Trial and error is the most reasonable path of investigation.

Typically, when carefully tuned HF wire antennas are moved, the tuning process needs to be repeated.
