Thanks for your help.  I did mean khz - not mhz.  I calculate 493 turns using
#28 wire wound on a 3.0" dia bottle, 7.0" winding length.  I assumed 97% x
72.7 turns per inch and then used 70.5 turns per inch in the equation.  Using
Wheelers Equation, I get 6.5 mh and unloaded frequency of 974 khz and 654 khz
with toroid.

You asked if the inductance wasn't a bit low?  Can you expound on this?  If
you are going to use a wine bottle, that's what you get - unless I drop down
in wire size to something like # 32 which should raise the inductance by
about 50%
