This subject comes up now and then so I am posting the data for when it is needed. Back in the good old days we didn't buy litz wire we made our own . That is the appeal of this unit, it used plain wire (make your own litz).
The LW former would be made in the same manner and then have an o-ring placed on each end to build a 'dam' to hold the wire in place as it is would.
It's a starting point even if you don't have the ferrite. I have a 6" rod to adapt. I haven't had much bench time lately so I have found a project.
Use the process from this post and make your coil then add the core to make a variable inductor to use with fixed capacitor.

Edit 2: Glue the ferrite to a threaded rod or use a copper or aluminum screw to make this one.

With so many possibilities just build something!
I have quite alot of Ferrite Aerials which I collected from radios I salvaged, which I use every now and then.The information from this article,is very helpful.Thanks for using your time to share with us this knowledge.ReplyDelete
You are welcome. It is good to know they will be used and not thrown out with the trash.ReplyDelete
