That is a great looking coil!  Bob

Yes... all you'll need for 8.3 kHz is make another coil of same size, but wind ~ 3.5 times as many turns (1160) of 3.5 times thinner wire (0.32 mm). 
Try it!

RR DEX, that looks fine! And it gives an impression between coils at 30 kHz to coils at 9 kHz.

I've received a lot of questions about the new coil:

The form is a pool chemical container from about 20 years past.
Resorting to a more sensible measurement standard I conclude the following:

Total turns counts 325

Coil length 375 mm

This indicates a wire size of AWG 17 which is 1.15 mm diameter  (375 mm
/ 325 turns = 1.1538 mm per turn)

Coil diameter 350 mm

This calculates to approximately 24 mH which is close to the 25 mH I
initially measured which I later revised to 26.1 mH.

However I've made so many calculation errors recently this also may
change :)
