#31 and #43 are poor choices for transformers that must handle power
because they are lossy -- that's why they work for common mode chokes.
#61 is a far better choice for a TX transformer -- much lower loss at
HF, which is why it's also lousy for chokes. #31 and #43 ARE just fine
for RX antenna transformers below 20M.
