# Re: [TCML] way off base

```Loud, sustained cheers and applause for "Liberty Rising"! Instead of
spouting formulas and numbers, where there is a gazillion variables,
finally someone says to look at the simple things first and go from
there!

Achieving maximum Q is about considering ALL factors, physical
placement of
components, build quality and materials used, symmetry and geometry,
quality of electrical connections, environmental conditions
(temperature,
wind and humidity), grounding, spatial considerations (ie were the
device
is placed in relation to the floor, ceiling and surrounding objects
that
may interfere with tuning) and of course, any changes to the values
of the
electrical components themselves. If you alter capacitance and/or
inductance anywhere in the device you will need to make adjustments
to
achieve the general goal of hobby coiling, which is to produce the
longest
and most impressive looking and sounding streamers. You can plug
numbers
into a program all day and build the "perfect" TC, but you can never
count
on that program to give you the perfect results. Use theory and
programs to
form a baseline, use your eyes, ears, your gut instincts and some
elbow
