I think that'd be a WA5BXO question. He built his own link-coupled
tuner, yet the link was 'stationary' and didn't move, or rotate.
He also had several taps on a healthy piece of air-dux coil-stock. The
'link' was wrapped -around- the air-dux, with matching taps on the
opposite side of the air-dux.
Two sets of switches to move the taps in/out as needed for frequency,
and two capacitors.
