Re: coil design help
Original poster: DRIEBEN-at-midsouth.rr-dot-com
The only thing that would have to be changed to run with a .024 uFD as
opposed to a .097 uFD cap is the tap of the primary coil assuming that
you've built the coil with plenty of room for varying the primary tap.
Obviously, you would have to have considerably more primary inductance
(more primary turns) to tune in with a .024 uFD primary cap as opposed
to a .097 uFD primary cap. It would probably take about twice as many
primary turns to tune in with a .024 uFD primary cap as with a .097 ufd
cap since the inductance of a given coil increases as the square of the
number of turns and .097 is about 4x .024. So make sure that you design
your primary with plenty of turns (12 to 15 will probably suffice) and
you should be ok.
