Hello folks. I have another question.
To match the capacitance obtained from the software's online (for the
toroid), can I just purchase any size aluminum duct from Lowe's or Home
Depot (say 4"x8' piece or 3"x8' piece)? Or do you I have to physically
measure the capacitance of my toroid once it's been constructed?
Correct me if I am wrong but if the following is true, then it the
statement above does not really matter:
The larger the capacitance on the topload (i.e., the larger the toroid),
the more turns I would need to tap to get the TC to tune?
The smaller the capacitance on the topload (i.e., the smaller the
toroid), the less turns I would need to tap to get the TC to tune?
Since I have around 14.7 turns, the point of tap must occur on the 14th
turn or less.
Your comments and remarks will be appreciated.
