Re: Coil form material - Q-killer?

Original poster: "Gav D" <gdingley@xxxxxxxxx>

thanks for the link, looks allot more complicated than I thought,
another random mechanism that makes it work so well in the garage, and
then does barely anything when you take it to a Teslathon.

I have not read the link properly yet, but was a ground plane used to
distribute the self-capacity of the coils measured?

I have sent copies of the Medhurst and the Wheeler skin-effect papers
to those who showed an interest in them, if anyone else wants a copy
let me know, they are 370kb and 1Mb respectively; I'll send them as a
reply attachment independently.
