Flywire antenna

has anyone tried to build the "flywire antenna" from aeromicro's how to page? I went to radio shack yesterday and they had no clue as to what resistor I wanted. I was hoping maybe someone else has built one of these and knows what the value of this resistor is.

The component in that diagram may look like a resistor but it is actually an INDUCTOR or CHOKE, value 1.5 microHenry, as the instructions say. I doubt if RS stock them but real electronics places like Digikey probably will.
