Total posts : 45366
I just wound a loading coil for my transmitter. I am not sure of the performance yet. I have a field strength meter on order and am waiting for its arrival. For grins, I used 24 AWG enamel copper wire and wound a total of 500 turns with taps. The resistance at about 400 turns is about 7 ohms. Is that too much? Should I try it out and see how it performs? Should I used something like AWG 20 or less?
