Re: Structural support, was: oil dielectric

Of course, the microwave is at 2450 MHz, and the TC is at 0.245 MHz... a
mere 5 orders of magnitude.  Lots of things have lots of loss at >500 MHz
and are just fine down low (FR4 and G10 come to mind..)

At TC frequencies, magnetic properties and bulk resistivity are probably
more important
