Actually, fastTesla/fasthenry won't do capacitance.  FastCap does that,
and I haven't gotten around to using it yet.  However, I plan on
including the ground plane line in my fastTesla program.  That does
change the inductance of a coil, just like ground effects alter the near
field and thus resonance of an antenna.  Rob.
