I remember many years ago seeing a picture of a capacitor where the two leads formed a continuous u-shaped loop. Clearly the end had not been cut off. The unusual thing about this was that manufacturer claimed 100% component testing in the factory.

Did they say the components actually passed the testing?

Put a FET on the long lead and use it as the antenna element of an active antenna.
