Hello Marco,
16 May 2017

Good  to  hear  from  you,  thanks  for  the  reply. I have remade the
combiner's  output  transformer using 3 stacked 78 material toroids of
the same size, and wound it with 180 strand speaker wire, pure copper,
with  an inner conductor of about 2mm diamter. I wound 3 times as many
turns, 15 on the primary, 21 turns on the secondary. It now runs about
40 degrees Celcius with no fan cooling, and the drain wave forms are a
lot  less  spiky.  I  saw  fair-Rite  now list a 98 compound, and it's
advertised  as  a  big  improvement  for  the  frequency  than  the 78
material,  but  there's  an error on their web site and 98 compound is
not available in toroidal form, unfortunately. I did see this beast in
78  compound  though, a lot bigger than the FT-240 cores, and wondered
if the fairly high cost is worth it?

Thanks again!
