How close can a vacuum capacitor be mounted to the cabinet wall on 6 meters? I know the space required for arc prevention is required, but how does it affect the tuning to have close to cabinet wall? I've checked capacitance with lying close to wall, and moved out a couple of inches. Not much difference in capacitance measurement.
One end will be mounted direct to front panel with front panel VERY good connection to chassis RF deck. The glass envelope is larger than the ends, and with glass touching cabinet would put ends a good 1" from cabinet wall. If there is a 1/4" between glass and wall - would that be ok?
Thanks for all the help and ideas.
