I'm trying to buy all the parts needed to construct a carpet loop antenna as detailed:
The only part I cannot find is a 365pf variable capacitor. I can however find a variety of other capacitors, the easiest to source being one with a range of 0-200pf.
Can anyone tell me if a 200pf capacitor can be used for shortwave listening or do I need a capacitor as close to 365pF as possible? I am unsure what the different ranges on offer actually mean in reality. Does it equate to better fine tuning or would a smaller capacitor give a shorter tuning range?
