Re: [TCML] Why copper tubing for primary?

Hi Ray,
No, do you want to completely strip large gage copper wire to tap and tune? Perhaps there is some reason concerning the wire is stranded but I doubt it, I think it is all about convenience for tuning and mechanical ease of making a tap.

and easier to work with. Is it merely a difference in the inductance values?
