RE: [TCML] Coiling direction - any influence?
No flames - just some clarifying warmth. I think your differing results
come from errors inadvertently introduced into your experiment. For
example, the routing of the wire to the tap on your primary can either add
or reduce the primary impedance, depending in the primary winding direction,
due to mutual coupling effects with the tap wire. This can affect tuning
which will affect performance.
>From a physics standpoint, the magnetic fields coupling the two coils don't
care which way the coils are wound. In one case your topload will first
swing to a positive voltage in the first half cycle. In the other case, it
will first swing to a negative voltage.

Dear list, please don't flame me for answering a guys question.
I have found that making the winds go in the same direction helps. People
disagree about this topic, but from *EXPERIMENTS* I have determined that a
coil works better when all the turns are left handed, or all right handed.
