Interesting. I got a reply from Steph, the original author, and she said to use 4.2K...
I'll get back to it when the fancy hots me, which could be any time!  ;)

Thanks Bob, great info!

I figured that on 80m, losses can have an impact. Not like on 20m.. The band is noisy and every bit helps.
I might have to rethink my potting plans then.. Maybe something closer, like closed-cell foam.
My idea was to find some kind of mylar for extra insulation between the coil and the case.


Just wrap the coil in teflon pipe tape, its a good insulator and holds up real well to high voltage !
