Re: Toroid inductance

Duh.  Thanks for the reality check.  Just when I thought I had all the bases
covered, it's nice to have someone point out the obvious that I missed 
entirely.  I'm still going to use the cores, but will need to ponder the 
matter more fully.  I'll post my idea so that others may scrutinize it 
and point out other potenitally obvious omissions.
