Re: Aluminum magnet wire?
" That is very dangerous because, aluminum is paramagnetic, and it
presents the opposing magnetic field to a changing magnetic field. I
wouldn't say that was a good experiment for a novice at all. Unless,
have years of experiance, don't do it."
Don't understand this. Aluminum would be just fine, if you can get it
with the insulation you want. Somewhat difficult to establish a good
connection in low-voltage service, but that would be no problem in a
Hi-Z circuit like a TC. Note that almost all HF antennas are made from
aluminum, and all are much lower impedance than that of a TC secondary.
They are much more affected by RF resistance than any TC.
