Last night while tuning my Amp, 2 x 3-1000Z, into the dummy load on 75 meters, I accidentally turned the Roller inductor instead of the Antenna load Crank. The two turns counters are side by side and I was not paying attention. Thought you guys might like to see this odd falure. The coil sections have shrunk on the form and stacked the wires into a tighter band. I installed this choke myself a month ago and at the time got a spare. They used to be identical.
