RE: Cores

For the transformers 10 turns on FT37-43 ferrite is a good match.
For the tuned inductors and low pass network T37-6 or T50-6 is good.

For 9.6 mhz IF and in both the 20m and 6m version that was what I used.

Note FT is ferrite and T is powered iron. The latter is better for
tuned circuits.

Since I used Farhan's air-cored toroid idea (small plastic rings as coil
formers) I am probably not the best person to answer your question about
which ferrite type toroid core material is best for your application.
Possibly some other member of the BITX20 forum could answer this

As to wire size, the currents involved are rather small, so the real
question seems to be how small can the wire be and still be reasonably
easy to work with in winding the transformers. For my plastic core
transformers I used #26AWG which is approximately 0.404 mm or British

The number of turns will depend to some extent on which ferrite core
material you use. There are published tables which show the number of
turns required for a specific inductance for each type of ferrite mix.

For the non-resonant transmission-line transformers used in the mixers
it is usually adequate to have between 7 and 11 turns per winding if you
are using ferrite based toroid cores. I am using 16 turns with my
air-core transformers.

Please, I am constructing the BITX-40 v3 version of Rahul, but I want
to construct it (T1, T2 and T3) with FT37-61 or FT37-43 which of the
two would be better? And how many wire returns AWG would be necessary?

Thank You!
