Tip & How-To about Radio Communications
I took a "Pringles chip" rounded container and wound 8.25 ft of fine copper wire around it from top to bottom with a screw up top(bore into cardboard) holding it in place, and a***Shiny" screw **attached to the metal bottom. Then i took 8.25 ft. and placed it inside of the Pringles can. I punched a hole into the plastic lid and pulled through the wire to go to ANTENNA INPUT. Sitting it on top of the radio I let the metal bottom touch the GROUND by a screw. I keyed the radio it matched the same as my Antenna did. It keyed the exact same 1.5 watts and swinging to 4 watts when I whistled on my PC68Xl Uniden 40 ch. CB radio. Make sure both ends are stripped of enamel coating by scraping it off. I use a cigarette lighter for this or my teeth, or rough sandpaper, or nail polisher. The screw up top of canister is not important --it just holds the wire,so to easy wound the wire. I gapped it about 1 inch apart between windings.
