With the exception of a shaky introduction, this video does an excellent job of showing how an old mobile/cell phone antenna can be reused to make a new VHF/UHF antenna for the 2 m and 70 cm amateur radio bands. The coaxial cable from an old mobile antenna can be converted into a "sleeve" or coaxial dipole antenna suitable for portable, emergency, or home use. OH2FTG instruction's are clear and easy to follow. Don't discard that old mobile antenna--recycle it as a new antenna.
