Ah yes, I remember watching that inductor auction. I don't even remember 
how I stumbled upon that cap. Didn't think it was that big in the pics 
so I bid on it. Now I find out many guys have those. Must be some 
broadcast transmitter parts. I think I'll use it as the variable part of 
a series resonated transformer coupled transmitting loop on 600 meters. 
It looks like it will handle 50a of current. I need a 50a rating to run 
a kilowatt with a 63' dia loop.
What are you gonna use the big inductor for? It looks like it is 
basically the size of this cap. Monster roller!!! hi hi...
