Not necessarily. Fan dipoles are well known to work quite well, and 
have been a popular antenna for both hams and commercial radio 

In this configuration, dipoles for multiple bands are built running 
parallel to each other, separated by spreaders at intervals of 
roughly 6 ft. I've built and used a bunch of them with spacings of 
7-9 inches between elements of the fan.
