These are instructions on how to make a Radio Back-Pack for the Paracord Army Man.  Instructions for the Paracord Army Man can be found here: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Posable-Army-ManWoman-1/.

This back-pack is fashioned so that it can be removed if desired.

The construction techniques are the same as the army man.  You will need about 28" of paracord, 28" of 22 gauge wire, scissors, wire cutters, ruler and a lighter.

Step 1: Prepare the Materials

Cut Three pieces of paracord, two 9” and one 10”.  Remove the center strands.  Cut three pieces of 22 gauge wire the same lengths.

Use a lighter to melt one end of each paracord outer sheathing and insert the corresponding length of wire in the center. Stretch the paracord along the wire and melt the other end of the paracord sealing the wire inside. Fold the 9” lengths in half to find the center.  Fold the 10” length as show in the photo.  This one will make the antenna.
<p>Looks Awesome!! I will make this.</p>
<p>Thank you For The Instructable... I Made the Radio (Had To Add Another Vertical Cord To Close The Gap, Cause I Used 16 Gauge Instead) But Looks Amazing Still, Also Made One With Two Horizontal Cords Too! (In 20 Gauge, But Forgot To Add For The extra height, So Only Got 2 Layers)</p>
It honestly seems really cool but how do u make it like a normal size backpack ?
<p>If by &quot;normal&quot; you mean longer in the vertical direction, then I think you should be able to add more horizontal pieces, starting out, to create a taller back-pack. Be sure to add length to the vertical pieces to accommodate the additional weave. I will give it a try when I get a chance and post any complications I run into.</p>
