Video - making the ADS-B collinear antenna

I posted earlier in the month about using the inexpensive RTL-SDR dongles with some free software to create a virtual radar system.

I mentioned about how I had built an inexpensive collinear antenna out of coax to improve my reception, both in range and message rate.

I made a video detailing the construction, the original plans can be found at http://www.balarad.net/ 

Anyway here is the video, I hope it encourages people to have a go.
