Absolutey it would be of interest! Yes, if you keep inductance close and the Fo
close, then the tank would also stay close. This would be a great test to show
a difference not only of diameter as John has mentioned, but also secondary
turns and/or h/d ratios (5:1 vs 3.2:1). The skin depth should remain close as
well since it's the same wire size and Fo is the same (hmmm., will more turns
add to proximity losses?). Yes, this would be a very good test. 

Keep us update,
