I'm intrigued at the thought of building a transmatch using all hand built components. I have a few questions I've not been able to really find the answers for. Hopefully someone with more smarts than I can put me on the right path...
1. I assume from reading that up to 250 pf per cap would be sufficient? Is that too much or would more be better?
2. I wonder what would happen if the aluminum plates were annodised? The aluminum oxide formed is non-conductive or so it seems by the annodising article.
3. A value for inductance for the coil to match the capacitance?
4. Plate spacing for the cap if used with an amplifier capable of 1000 watts output?
5. Would the enclosure need to be metal? Being somewhat of a woodworker also I was thinking of a nice looking wooden box for it.
I have almost all the material needed...don't have the allthread. My strengths lean way more to the mechanical rather than electrical. Thanks in advance.
