Re: FSL coil Q of 1162/46 and 660/46 Litz compared using HP4342A Q meter

I just checked with Mike at https://www.mikeselectronicparts.com/ and he says his current caps are the latest version "0219" so I just ordered one to try.

Thanks for this info, Gary.

Hi Steve,
To make matters even more interesting, Oren Elliott seems to have recently improved his manufacturing process in the later "N50 384P" variable caps, so that the N50 384P caps with a "0219" series number are clearly superior to those with a "0217" series number. I don't know if he has been improving the dielectric, rotor or stator, but these newest variable caps are extremely sharp performers-- to the extent that every FSL antenna heading for the Rockwork Cliff this summer will have one of the latest variable cap upgrades.
