I second that.
I have been building coils for 3 years now and I still am only just getting
an angle on how to
tune them. I went to the museum today to show some friends the 2 metre
plus arc's and the darn
thing wouldn't play ball. It worked fine on Wedsneday, and I haven't moved
anything. I did get
it to perform OK after a lot of static gap cleaning and retuning. I
suspect it was the cold
damp weather, but I don't know for certain. I am nearly ready to try out my
async rotary, this
will be a whole new area to explore. i am looking forward to it with relish.
