A friend of mine received a Ceramic Vacum Capacitor with the purpouse of shunt 
feed his tower, he asked me for help my my experience it´s based upon regular 
air-dielectric caps.

Because it´s the first time that I see such a cap I have several installation 

1.- What kind of material could be used as base, to afix the cap. Because I am 
afraid of afix it directly to the bottom of the Rubbermaid Container so I was 
thinking about nylon or bakelite. Am I right???

2.- Has two flat contact points, small but sharp, wich is the best method to 
solder the antenna wire? may I do it directly without risk of damage the Cap.

Your suggestions will be welcome.
