I also believe mounting a coil at right angles to
the antenna stick will increase the Q. I have no
data to support this, but it just seems to make
sense to me.
When I shut down the MICRO1690/1700 transmitter
system a few years ago, I LOST the loading coil! It
may be just as well, because it was out in the elements
for a long time.
As I am trying to get it back on again, I am going to
have to start from scratch. I also would like to wind
a coil such that the windings are a little bit apart, based
on your above comments. I haven’t figured out exactly
what I want to do yet, but I will have some questions
at some point.
There certainly is a lot to think about regarding coils.
Especially from the crystal set crowd and also the
longwave Part 15 experimenters.
