    I made this with one strand taken from a 4 strand RJ-11 telephone cable. I made it exactly 3 meters (3*39 inches) long turning it around a wrapping paper tube and a very short tail of wire connecting it to my FM receiver. Voila, all stations crystal clear!

    Nice. I have have used wire antennas for a number of my radios and they work pretty well.

    This one works as a transmitter antenna if you want to transmit music via fm.
