I used plans from RF Design magazine. You can get the cores from a number of
sources or you can buy one. ICE sells a nice transformer that is multiple
imp tapped. You can buy from Radioware in Mass. Palomar also sells plug and
play transformeres. There were also plans in an old 73 mag for a three wire,
six way beverages by YCCC'ers K1VR/N1RC. They used a quadrifilar wound,
Indiana General 626-12-Q1 core. The Fair-Rite core was #2843002402. This is
alow poer core. They have bigger ones that Palomar uses that will take power.

Remember, there are any number of cores you can use. U need either a 9-1 or
12-1 ratio. Try one then try the other. See which works the best.

Hope this helps.
