>It also seems a bit of an overkill for an 8877.
? How could we possiblly know this if the dimension of the ribbon was
not given? The tank circulating-current in an 8877 amplifier can easily
be 13A-rms. E>F. Johnson rated their 12.7mm/0.5" ribbon inductors
(222-series) at 15A.
>Many have reported problems with arcing and parasitics when a roller coil
>is used, particularly the large edgewound Multronics style.
? I used such an inductor in my 8171 amplifier. I shorted the unused
turns with 5/8" strap. There was no arcing at the inductor. However,
there was initially an, intermittent vhf parasite. The cure was to use
a lower vhf-Q anode parasitic-suppressor.

? Surplus Sales sells the 5.uH Collins 180t roller-L for $35. Fair
Radio sells the same item for $10.
