Hi, I'm trying to make a homemade wifi antenna and I just saw the inner pieces of the antenna cable. I'm not sure if there's only one wire inside the antenna cable cuz it looks like two......
Are there 2 separate wires inside the cable or are there just one?
Maybe one is just a metal shield?

Normally one wire in the middle surrounded by a layer of plastic insulation then a shield around that. The shield is often metal foil or metal flashed plastic with a wire loosely wrapped around it. Maybe you are seeing the inner wire and the outer shield wires.
