Re: Antenna for my minivan

If you remember the rooftop television antennas,  that's what they did there, each bar was cut for a specific channel or frequency range.
Obviously you know nothing about antenna design. Each "bar" (element) is part of the antenna design. The antenna was designed for a specific frequency, generally in the middle of the band. Some of them were combined for VHF and UHF but still the same design, for the middle of the band. You also buy antennas for a specific channel (frequency).

Generally for a receive antenna the frequency the antenna is designed for isn't real critical. If you were looking for performance at a specific frequency, then you would want to get an antenna for that frequency.
