Reusing Metal Coat Hangers

Our radios are broken. Well, mostly the antennas, but without them we can’t get evening jazz music. So I asked Ernie if he could figure something out for new antennas, and of course he used metal clothes hangers.

We have a box full of the just sitting in the back shack, waiting for projects like this.

The hanger does not stay on the blue radio on is own  and needs to be held, unless propped up against something such as is  shown in the photo. The grey radio holds the hanger nicely while standing.

Our conclusion: keep your metal clothes hangers.
