Original poster: "Jason Johnson by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <hvjjohnson13-at-hotmail-dot-com> Thanks to everyone who helped me with the formulas. I've got all the AWG formulas that I needed working in excel. By the way the spreadsheet that I am working on is a decent sized TC calculator, that does most everything from calculating everything you need to build transformers, capacitors, inductors, primaries, secondaries, spark gaps, toploads etc. etc. I really like the spreadsheet so far because it has all the calculations that I ever use, some of which I've never seen in a TC program before (mostly the transformer info). It may not be as nice as some other programs but I'll let everyone judge for themselves. It should be done in another day or two.
