16-turn S-band helix



I swung by Home Depot for the parts to make one of these today...the 14 awg
copper they had was plastic insulated. That shouldn't make any difference in
antenna performance, yathink? I can strip it off if you think it might. But I
think it will be pretty. :-) 

The guy at Home Depot that cut the wire for me asked me what I was doing, so I
told him I was building a microwave antenna. He said "Going to broadcast your
cooking, eh?"
