Re: Winding toroids


Well if you keep your head about you, the harmonics don’t necessarily have to be an issue.  Remember square waves just generate harmonics… and at known locations so trimming a resonate circuit to 7.0 MHz from 7.2 MHz won’t see much of an issue.  It might if you were trimming to a harmonic frequency, but the fundamental will always be higher amplitude.


I like the German DIPIT kit a lot, but at 150+ euros it’s a non-starter.  I’ll see if I can design up something simple (read that CHEAP) that does the same thing.

Ahh, good point.  Square wave bad, sine wave good.
I guess my 40 years spent in digital design is showing through.

And yes, a good spot for a DDS if you insist on "modern" for some reason.
Don't care so much about spurs 40dB down when checking out an inductor.

Oddly sweperino (570 or 5351 based) works like crap for resonance. 
A DDS powered version works.  Reason Square Vs Sine, those pesky
