Greetings Chip,It's been a bit since I've "chipped" in with a response however my concern is that with the existing email system I have been able to save most emails to my hard drive via my client (Thunderbird). I have thousands of past emails which I am able to search through off-line.
Will a forum approach allow me to continue to collect my data base? Just bringing this up for consideration. steve-seattle Here is my first saved email from when I joined the list in 1996: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Subject: Frequency calculations

I was doing some calculations last night on my new small coil and found a problem with equation # 6: Frequency of Coil. The formula given is: F=300,000 / T x W x pi x (.9144 / 36) x 4 where f = frequency of the coil in khz, T = number of turns, W = width of the coil in inches. Using this formula, I get a number quite a bit lower (like 40 or 5% lower) than I get using wheelers equation, caclulating the self capacitance then calculating the resonate frequency . I have measured the inductance of my present coil and the self capacitance and the frequency and know these other methods work as they should. Has anyone else tried using this formula? Ed Sonderman
Ed, In Foster's book on elctromagnetics I use the formulae designed for circular pole antanae. And, Brent turner uses the same formula in his book. But It's probably a good idea to calculate your coils parameters ten ways from sunday. Sorry, I have not used the "Richard Q." equation. 1.75(h/d)^0.2 ---------------- (1*10^9) (Fr*d) = Nt h = height of coil d = diameter of coil Fr = Frequency your shooting for Nt = Number of turns Hope this helps.
