Straight, radially away, direction outwards from center of coil.
No pheripherial loops, snakes near prim. coil, that affect tuning, by adding
or neutralising active primary turns.
In save perpendicular distance from prim. coil turns, to avoid arcing tap
wire to outer prim. coil turns.

Will try that next....once I know the optimal tap point - I imagine you
don't want to be snaking the tap wire all over the place under the primary -
or does it not matter?
