I wrote an article on receiving loops and showed a design
with a 50:5 (turns ratio) transformer wound on a toroid.
Again, this is not available from MiniCircuits. I have
wasted time dealing with numerous dumb questions about
"can I use XXX core that I have laying around the lab?"
or can I use a different gauge wire to wind it, etc.
So many people complained about the shipping cost to
buy one core that I stocked the cores and included them
with PC boards I was already selling to reduce the shipping
cost to "zero".
BTW, 73 material would NOT work in this application.
I was asked about that multiple times even though the
article specifically said it would not work and explained
