    I have an old Golf Ball Retriever that I broke. The retreiver potion off of. It is 25' long.
    Here is the link to the item. http://www.amazon.com/Search-Rescue...e=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1261282564&sr=1-9

    I have purchased a receiver for my 5 year old daughter. I was wondering if anyone could "enlighten me" as to how hard it would be able to take this deal and make her an antenna to listen with.

    The retiever is 25' long and was wondering if a 16' +/- 6" (approximately) antenna might be a good deal for her. I am not looking for Bean like reception, but something she can have a little fun with.

    Can anyone please describe how I might be able to accomplish this and how effective you think it might be.

    I can be reached at liprippa@yahoo.com
    thanks for the help in advance

    It looks like the plastic locks would also be insulators. In other words make sure there is an electrical continuity between the collapsible sections.
    Personal, I'd use an end fed wire antenna for a receive only.
