[AMRadio] Strange oscillator?

Consider the whole circuit and the NET reactance change. It is possible
that although the powered iron increases the L and hence the reactance, the
resulting capacitive reactance change is such that the frequency
INCREASES... again you need to look at the whole network and think in terms
of reactance change.
