The M2 is a popular antenna, but some people just don’t like to deal with the hassle of building their own.
Here’s how to build a homemade M2 using some DIY components.
Find a good antenna.
If you can’t find one at a reasonable price, try an inexpensive antenna like the JVC XM-50U (review here).
This one costs $19.95 at Amazon and is a good choice for people who don’t want to spend a lot of money.2.
Measure the diameter of the M2.
For the purposes of this tutorial, we’re going to assume that you’re going for the same length of wire as the M1 antenna.
Measure around 6 feet (1.8 meters) across.
Drill out the holes in the back.
I found that a 12-gauge drill bit works best, as the drill bit will make the antenna more stable and easy to remove once it’s all assembled.4.
Make sure that the hole in the antenna doesn’t touch the ground.
To help you out here, I made a diagram that shows the distance from the base of the antenna to the antenna’s antenna mast.
I also used a ruler to show the angle that the antenna is pointing down.
This will help you keep track of the distance to the ground when you’re drilling.
Drill the antenna holes.
You’re going have to drill out the hole that connects to the base.
The screws that hold the antenna in place should be drilled to the center of the metal plate.
Make the antenna.4, 6, and 7 are the screws that connect the antenna piece to the metal base.
These screws will be the one that goes in the middle of the base, but you can use any other screw you like.
Once you have the screw that goes into the center hole, it’s time to drill through the bottom of the holes that are already in the metal.
The hole will be very long, so don’t be afraid to put some pressure into it.
This should take about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how tight your drill bit is.
You can always re-drill these holes, and you should be able to remove the M-2 piece after the drill is complete.
Drill through the center screw hole.
This hole will go in the center and will be a bit of a pain, but it will make it easier to drill.5, 6 and 7 in the picture are the holes on the bottom right of the diagram.
The holes that go in front of the center screws are the ones that are going to go into the M4 piece, so it’s pretty simple to get those holes drilled in the right places.
Drill holes for the M3 and M4.
We’re going use a 12mm-diameter hole, so you can get a good gauge on how long you need to drill these holes.
I used a 7mm-long drill bit to drill the M5 hole.
Cut the antenna pieces.
Cutting the antenna has a lot to do with the strength of the wires.
The longer the wire, the more force it will be exerting on the metal, and it will also affect the stability of the piece.
If you can handle that, the best way to get a nice uniform shape is to use a pair of scissors.
It’s best to cut the pieces in half, so that the pieces are not too long and the pieces aren’t so long that they touch the metal (see picture to the right).
I cut mine in half because I didn’t want them to touch each other, but if you’re more concerned with cutting the pieces into sections, I recommend cutting them into smaller pieces.
It doesn’t have to be exact.
Connect the pieces.
Once you’ve cut out the pieces, connect the wires from the M6 to the M7 piece.
Solder the wires onto the M8.
Solde the M9 and M10 wires onto both M9 pieces.14.
Soldar the M11 and M12 wires onto each M10 piece.
This is going to be the M13 piece, but don’t worry about making sure that you solder everything.
It will take a few seconds to solder everything together.
If everything looks good, it should look something like this: 15.
Sold the M14 piece.16.
Solded the M15 piece.17.
Soldered the M16 piece.18.
Soldared the M17 piece.19.
Soldiled the M18 piece.20.
Soldaced the M19 piece.21.
Soldited the M20 piece.22.
Soldeded the M21 piece.23.
Soldated the M22 piece.24.
Soldased the M23 piece.25.
Soldilled the M24 piece.26.
