Thanks Michael and Sebastian for the quick answer.
The flat where I live is owned by Siemens (actually, this is an
apartment flat), and I'm not sure if is it permitted to put anything
to the roof, so I think I can built antenna only to my window. :-) But
my flat is at 4th floor, quite high. So, what antenna do you recommend
me from this site:
I can see v13.freiesnetz.funkfeier.at or something like that, maybe
you need this information , because of the signal strength.

I'm not so familiar in wireless antennas, that's why I need your advice.
