Re: hot glue toroids
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
When I worked for a uk company manufacturing wireless microphone systems used in both broadcast and London's West End we always used hot glue to stabilise inductors.
Why? It's easily re-workable and it can withstand being thrown around a stage hidden in an actors costume
That was VHF and UHF systems but I have used it at HF without problem :-)

While doing some diagnostics on my QCX-40, I noticed that several, if not all, the toroids are really only held in place by the very thin magnet wire soldered to the board.
