|PL-259 Soldered to Cable|
Below is a photo of the completed choke. You can wind the choke through the toroids with the PL-259's already connected. So, instead of building a 36-inch piece of cable from scratch, you could just purchase one and wind it through the toroids. I used a couple of Ty-Raps to secure the windings so they did not "un-wind." An Amphenol PL-258 double-female connector with Teflon insulation is connected to one end to simplify the installation of this choke either at the antenna or at the rig.

Still, I got one project off my "To Do" list today while "snowed-in"! On to the next!
