I have two 3.5" OD ferrite chokes.  I got some RG 59 and stripped away the
outside and wound the choke with the center wire.  I have as many turns as
will fit and only come up with 1.078mH.  What should I do now?  Should I
just go and used wire with thinner insulation so I can fit more turns?  I
thought I needed the thick insulation though.  Any help would be greatly
