As Jacek told, there are of course several more distributors for that
module, not just amazon. Try to find another source and you will have it
in a few days. Maybe it will be a bit more expensive. Even in amazon i
can click "Lieferung morgen" (delivery tomorrow), and i will find
distributors that seem to be in-land.

Your sliding bucket VLF coil is making me envious. Markus uses this
method as well. I am using the pies configuration and limiting my
to 1/4 amp to prevent high voltage problems.
250 mA is already respectable. I thought you have much less.
Same problem here. My large coil had just 680 Ohm at 6.1 H! But as soon
as there was a short cutted stack, it is a lot of work to repair it.
With the stracked buckets you can reach the faulty windings at once.
When deciding for that concept last year, it didn't expect critical
field strengths at all.
After some tinkering I managed to get 1/3A with 2 large pies (~100mH) and
one small one. The total was 500mH at 150 ohm DC so very low loss,
but very difficult to find the shorted turns when it arcs out.
Well said :-) That the easy way to do it. Just wind a few hours, when it
gets boring just make a break and continue the next day. Listen to some
good music, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4ga_M5Zdn4 and think
about gigantic DX and deepest frequecies.
You are correct that winding VLF coils is relaxing. There is one motor
to twist the 24 0.08mm wires together and another to wind them on the
lexan spindles. The next step is to use 3 or 4 spindles and think about
how reduce the voltage gradients. It is relaxing watch this action.
When I get bored watching, I go in the back yard and work on aerials
for a while and check the winding later as it progresses.
At least. I would try to reach the voltage limit of the antenna
You mentioned I should set a goal of 150 uW.
The big RL is up again
and I'm looking out for cheap car audio amps so progress is being
made towards higher ERP.
How much power are you running presently?
And who is the next receiving station to you? Is it really Paul? No one
else in a 4000 km radius???
