Questions on Coil performance
Original poster: "Andy Cobaugh by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <kb3ewy-at-rcn-dot-com>
I have a couple of questions. When I ran my coil with a 15/30, I got 30"
arcs with 15 geek caps in series. When I moved up to a 15/60, I can only
get 33" arcs with 12 caps. When I went to 11 caps, moving closer to LTR,
the arcs were even shorter. It was in tune each time as I use a roller
inductor to tune it. Also, how important is toroid height? I see the same
performance whether it is 1" or 6" above the secondary. What should it be?
Any help would be much appreciated.
