 Do you think it is possible to get good results with this
 small system if I use the bare copper wire that is sold
 for ground connections to circuit breaker boxes?
 I know it is not tubing and that its surface area is smaller
 and a waste that it is solid, but it seems to me that I can
 have a much physically smaller primary.
 One recourse: I can use the copper tubing and just have say
 4 turns, make my primary first, and wind the secondary to
 be within tuning range.

On my latest 3" coil, I use a flat primary made with solid # 10 copper
inclined at about 15 degrees.  Performance is not bad.
