sorry guys, just read this now i already wraped the wire in one of the cones, i m not a expert in maths geometry etc thats why took me so long to figure out the sophiecenta formula :D i will draw some things, to explain what my experiment is about, so u guys that are more smart than me, maybe if interested try out :D

it will take some time cuz i want to write and draw my ideias.

I'm not sure why the OP didn't want the spacing between wires to be constant, which would translate into an Archimedean spiral (r = a θ + b) on the opened surface.
I should have stated this as the 3d cone eqivalent of a 2d Archimediean spiral, one with equal spacing between loops of wire. For a 3d cone in spherical coordinates, this tranlates into ρ = a θ , ϕ = constant.

An unrolled cone only forms a partial disk, so I'm not sure it's a good analogy to use.

i had i new ideia :D we can use the same method of tesla coils use convert an DC to AC and give a bit of electrical charge that the antena needs, and see if it starts to resonate. Then i dont know how convert agian to DC and see how much we get out of it :D
