Re: 1500-3000 turn coils


I think that only a very small rise can be attributed to actual linear 
transformer action, and it is mostly resonant rise.  One thing to note, 
many people built candle stick secondaries, with poor performance (before 
the advent of the Internet and the creation of chip's list, with pooling of 
great minds, :)), but I think the greater inductance makes sense. But as 
John Freau has said, many factors play a role...
