The coil is:-

12 1/2" by 61" using 18AWG wire with a 6" by 28" top load the
frequency is 64.73 KHz
I`m using 0.02 uF of primary cap.

So how much inductance do I need on the primary to get the system to tune.

I`v used a few PC programs but the figures are out of there range.

HI Mike,

    Quick and dirty:


f=1/sqrt(L1*C1) = 1/sqrt(L2*C2)




This gets you reasonably close to where you will start tuning.
