   I am attempting to make a SLINKY antenna.  I have a 1:1 balum and 2 metal slinkys.  I have seen the cliffDweller II for $50 and figured I have the parts why not make one.  Here is my question.
Has anyone ever seen the CliffDweeler or has anyone ever made a linky antenna?  I need to know how the slinkys are attached to the I-rings of the balun.  Or I cound simply use a 4" jumper with alligator clips.

Thanks

I've got a Cliffdweller...unfortunately, the *worst* performing antenna I've ever tried!

The slinky(s) are attached (looped through) eyebolts at each end of a PVC Tee pipe with the balun wired and soldered to each Slinky.
