Before works stock up with two half liter cans, get a soldering iron and gumboil, and also an insulating tape (it is possible an adhesive tape), a cable of power supply of the antenna (RG-58 or similar), a drill with a drill five or the six.


Drill an opening with a diameter about five-six millimeters in the center of a bottom of one of cans. Through this opening then carry out a cable then bring him outside through the top part banks which will be the left half of a radiator of waves. The bottom thus will appear on the right side.


Smooth out the put-forward end of a cable on distance approximately in 15 mm, fluff up banks on a surface and solder to it. Exempt the central conductor from isolation on 3 mm and solder to the middle of a bottom of the second can.


In this place the soldering should be carried out by means of a narrow soldering iron because the crack between banks has to turn out minimum. Now both banks will be consistently located. Roll up a crack between them two turns of an insulating tape for fixing of the size of a crack, and also protect from bad weather the soldering the same insulating tape. If that near at hand is not present, also the adhesive tape or at least a rag will fit.
