Thanks to Roger and some others, the coil is now in one piece, (although 
probably not as pretty as it was before.

The hot glue gun worked perfect.  I put a piece of plastic under the wires 
and hot melt glued it.  Looks like I'm back in business.

Now, I still need a good bandswitch for my 'pretty' Matchbox.

What a great bunch on this reflector!!  73
