I'm hunting a 160m HDVL plug-in coil.
For the longest time, I didn't even think that any existed... until this
weekend. I happened to find both, the BVL and HDVL version of the 160m
plug-in coils at a local hamfest. Neither coil are in what anyone could
mistake as 'decent' shape, although the BVL version is, for the most
part, intact. The HDVL coil however, more resembles a plate of
spaghetti, or a loosely formed slinky.
I bought it anyway, because I thought could probably rebuild the HDVL
coil by taking apart a 360uuF air-variable and using the rotor plate as
the spacing, while I applied some liquid glass something or another to
hold it in place, again. I would like to find a good coil, though. Are
there any available, out there?
Knowing my luck, finding one will probably be like mining for unobtainium.
Thanks for your time.
