OK guys.... I need the wisdom of the ages... or is that aged?  I  dunno.
Over twenty years in the making... well, that's when I got the  bottle.  
Over the years I've collected the guts and small parts.  It's  time to put it 
all together.  
Basically adapting the parts that I have to the AA6GK design found on the  
Arkansas ARES/RACES site.
A couple of questions:
1.  Anybody have the specs on a PI-DUX 195-2 coil?  Diameter,  turns, 
length, AWG, etc?
2. The big question... his input net starts fine at 160m... 1820 puffs  >> 
10-15uH adjustable >> 1360 puffs on the output.  Looks good  as it breaks 
down to 1800p + 4.4uH = Z50 in : 9.7uH + 1360p = Z110 out.  
However, his 80m selection is more like 50 in and 60 out; 40m is 30 in and  
50 out; 20m is 18 in and 30 out; according to his capacitor selection and 
the  corresponding reactances and impedances
I think he was winding coils to use whatever micas he had in stock.   He 
has been unreachable via phone calls and e-mails to his mobile electronics  
business.  Should I use his specs, or would I be better to scale the values  
more towards 50 in and 110 out?
3.  Lastly, I have a 2H 1.6A monster choke for the HV PS.  The  tranny is 
3600 rms @ 1 amp.  About 5kV into the filter.  Using 4  tubbies at 8uF/4kV in 
series / parallel for 8uF at 8kV with 2 100k/225W  bleeders; the big choke; 
and then 14 390uF/450v lytics bridged with 14 50k 10Ws  on the output.
Ur thots on a resonating cap for the choke?  The first bleeder current  is 
about 25mA (about 125W)... might add an extra pair of 100k/100W to drop the  
heat; yea or nea?
And, yes, I put new 150# casters on the rack.... the HV PS runs about 150  
pounds.  ;-))
Thanx for the help.
