[AMRadio] FT102 and HDVL for 160

Somewhere around here I've got a 160 HDVL that I started to attempt to 
repair years ago.

I gave up in frustration.  Lots of turns on that thing.

And speaking of lots of turns:  I've got a coil with no markings, that can 
be read, that is exactly the same as an HDVL, excepting that the variable 
coil is mounted on bearings inside the coil.  Very similar to the BC-610 

This thing is quite large in diameter, perhaps 25% larger than the HDVL, and 
measures 60 milihenries end to end.

The swinging-link (or rotating in this case) coil is six turns of heavy 
edge-wound strap.

Anyone got any idea what this thing is?
