tuning a coil with a freq gen and a scope

Original poster: "Mr Gregory Peters by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <s371034-at-student.uq.edu.au>

Hello all,

I'm wondering what the best procedure for tuning a coil with a scope 
is. Should you grid dip the seondary when it is installed within the 
primary or when it is free standing? Should you grid dip the primary 
with the secondary installed, or without? I have previously grid dipped 
them separately, and then added an extra turn in the primary to 
compensate for corona loading. I normally base feed the coils through a 
1k resistor. Is this method reliable?
