In this you'll have a working radio "station" of sorts. the range won't be great but it'll work for everyday use.
For this you'll need
-itrip and software
-antenna or length of wire
-soldering gun (optional but recommended)
-hot glue gun (optional)
-wire stripper (helpful)
Step 1: Expose Antenna
On the top of your itip min you'll notice a sticker like white covering if you pry this up you'll expose the antenna lift this up but be careful if you rip it out your screwed.
Step 2: Expose and Solder
Next take the antenna and very carefully remove a bit of insulation from it exposing the wire within. Wire strippers would be useful here but you can use a knife.
Next with your old antenna solder it to the itrip antenna to form a larger antenna.
if you don't have a solder gun you can use some electrical tape but i recommend a solder gun.
an antenna can be substituted for bit of old wire wound around the groves of a wood screw to form an exceptionable coil. make sure to leave a tail on top. this can be slipped in to a fast food drink straw to provide a case.
Step 3: Finish
finally hot glue the whole assembly to the back of your itrip to form a nifty looking device make sure to cover the contact point between the itrip and the antenna with glue to prevent falling part.
