Re: Resonance Calculator Tool



Just to make sure that all works as anticipated in your club demo of the spreadsheet program...I have attached two versions of the spreadsheet to this email. The one with the .sxc sufix is customized for Linux and OpenOffice Spreadsheet tools. The one with the .xls suffix is my original version written using Win-98 and MS-Excel. This way you can provide copies to your club members that will fit whatever computing platform they might be using.

Please feel free to distribute this program for any non-commercial use. I had fun developing the code, so maybe someone else will have fun using it.

For your own use...the sheet protection password is my callsign (all lower-case) so now you can customize the spreadsheet to include your club logo or name. Just remember to make your changes to a "copy" of the original so that if you make a mess of it you can always return to the pure original and start over (with a new copy of the original!). 8-)

In the "files" section of this forum I have uploaded a small
spreadsheet program called "RESONANCE CALCULATOR.xls". This is a
spreadsheet program that helps calculate inductance, capacitance, or
frequency for various combinations of L and C. I found this very
handy in re-calculating the inductance values for converting Farhan's
BITX20 design into a BITX40 transceiver.

This is a Microsoft (tm) Excel spreadsheet, but if you do not have
MS-Excel all is not lost. You can go to <> and
download their FREE Open Office program. The spredsheet tool in Open
Office can read and execute MS-Excel programs. FYI: Open Office is
available for both MS-Windows and Linux, so if you are a Linux user
like me you now can have an equivalent of all the MS-Office tools for

If anyone has problems with this spreadsheet, please let me know
because I can easily generate and upload both MS and OpenOffice
specific versions of this tool. If you need to "unlock" the
spreadsheet to make your own changes to the layout or formula, also
please let me know and I can provide you with the program password.
