Subject: 	arrangemnt of my coil

After reading through some of the 800+ unread messages in my box, I
decided I need to post this and ask.  I have received email from many
people about how my coil should be setup, and there's one point that I can
never get a clear answer on.

Should my capicator be parallel with the transformer and the coil, or
should the capicator be in series with the coil?  Is there a pro and con
about this, or is it just personal feelings toward one or the other.
Someone please help me with this.
