    Thanks, I just built one for use with a mobile wifi hotspot, that had such lousy reception, most often couldn't load more than 2 webpages without it timing out or getting constant server errors, (despite indication getting 80-100% signal) and having to turn it off and on again to get it to work for that or each time, It's still slow, but so far getting less error messages, or quickly loads a timed out page when retrying My cable is near 40' hanging outside on a 12" tall TV antenna, on top of a Motorhome so 20' + high.

Looks like could just make the wire core longer and wrap around both those inside ends of the wire hanger unit. secure by zap straps or better to clean and solder it ....if not some of the solder that comes in a glue tube form.
