Duncan, All!

Therefore I've reduced the number of grid coil turns when converting 
the class C oscillator to class A.  As it is not very comfortable to 
remove a turn, test the oscillator, remove another turn..., I'll 
connect a variometer (salvaged from a diathermy machine) off axis 
to the primary coil. Hopefully it will be possible to vary the feedback 
voltage to the control grid easily.

- The only coil I've seen running so far was at the University of 
Hannover. No other coilers within some 100 km. One of the 
reasons may be, that the EMV (electro magnetic pollution) rules 
are very strict in this country. Another, that it is very difficult to spot
