Hello,

I had it on good authority that WB6 rings had one long wire. I just want to double check this.


If this is true... then the wire would need to be ~960 Meters long. (6 rings, 200 turns at ~0.25 meter average diameter, plus some slack).


Anyone have input on this? WB6 rings sat on four feet for power supply...

Each coil was wound seperately. They were joined via connections and the nubs. It was not "one piece of wire". But it was one wire electrically.

Wasn't there a really old prototype just for testing some concepts that was made from a single copper-tube?

To error is human... and I'm very human.
