Unfortunately, the intrinsic bowtie design/shape doesnt really benefit all that well from fractalization. (other than making it a work of art like yours is) If you replace the fractalized bowties you now have with straight elements with the same shorter length (and maybe the same width of the fractal portion or make the bowtie solid), the response curve and gain is going to be very very similar, ie better for the higher channels.
The GH design responds much better to fractalization. (better meaning closer to the unfractalized version. With fractals, there is always loss versus the unfractalized version of the same antenna. Unfractalize a cell phone antenna and youll have something really powerful, heh.) Look at Firimanis GH fractal models in the first few pages of Area 51.
My builds/plans (not the latest models) are located here.
