    Same thing. Nobody winds coils using bare copper because if the wires touch together it won't work right. The enamel solves that problem.

    I realize that I should of done more research on this topic instead of coming here since it is a dumb question to begin with.

    It's not a dumb question. Post the results of your radio work when you're done. Crystal sets are fun.

    How many crystal radios have you assembled Antiphon?
