Instructions in Gonzo Gizmos suggest the ferrite core has two wires, but the ones that came with your kits have four wires (3 from one end, 1 from the other). Which two wires are the correct ones?
(If visual identification is difficult, can I determine with an ohmmeter?)

The black and unpainted wires are the large coil.
There is another, smaller coil with red and green
wires. See the 10 minute radio kit for a photo.

In the Three Penny Radio, you can either ignore the red and green,
or attach the green to ground and red to a longer antenna.
