I bought 2 at Walgreens and 2 at Walmart about 3 inches
in diameter for making portable antennas.
Last year I got two of the original large diameter slinky coils
from the ham in New York, I believe, who used to make them.
I lost the address and e-mail in my harddrive crash but have
been looking for the original box and hope to find it after I get
unpacked from my recent move. I packed something in it.
