Where can I get that farite bead that you speak of? and price?

The frequencies I'm scanning are:
Low band - 46.060, 46.100, 46.160
UHF band - 460.600, 460.625, 462.950, 467.950

Thats why I want to use two antennas for each of the bands desired.

As far as the connector box, I'm assuming I can get one at radioshack for pretty cheap? One that makes multiple connections into one

Also, on that site that says how to build an antenna, it says the thinner the guage the better for reception? Is this correct? Should I use a 1/16 wire or 1/8?

Did some searching. Is this that ferrite thing?
