Hi Scott,

As long as you can vary the inductance in the tank circuit, the tuning 
will change. You could use an off-axis inductance, but you may also want 
to consider a dual-layer primary. If you made the connection from the 
lower primary to upper primary adjustable (up and down), you could vary 
the inductance by positioning the height between the two primary's. 
Another benefit is the primary would be more compact.

Take care,
