Hi Richard, All

Since I use an automatic winder, I usually space wind to some degree.  The
coil mentioned has 0.030 inch pitch with 0.020 inch wire (10 mil air space).
I don't know if this is good enough for the suppression effects you and Dr.
Resonance mention.  

This effect is really interesting.  Probably the lower turn-to-turn
capacitance reduces HF resonance.  Since we want to make coils as neighbor
friendly as possible, this observation is very important.
