Re: [TCML] 6"secondary

If you increase the secondary and top load size as you described, I would
expect that you would have to SIGNIFICANTLY increase the primary to keep it
in tune, to the point where it becomes unmanageable, unless you also up the
cap value.  And then you'll need a bigger NST...   I don't think just
adding a turn or two is going to be enough.  No worries on the tubing
diameter though.  I've found that such upgrades really call for a top to
bottom review of all components.  Project creep is unavoidable and the next
generation coil will look nothing like the original.
