A long-wire antenna is one of the oldest types of antenna designs... from the early days of radio. There are some commercially produced kits intended for the HAM radio market but I would go to the hardware store myself...

Some mechanical aptitude (or at least interest in building things from scratch) would be needed. (There's no shame in knowing your gifts, talents and limits. If you honestly know such a project is more than you should take on, you're a better person than someone who is unwilling to be honest with themselves.)
Yeah, I would have to find someone to do it. I think it is just way easier just to put it on the roof which my parents refuse. [sighs]
