175/#46 LITZ WIRE
Manufactured in 2007
Factory fresh Litz wire from New England Wire and Cable
This wire contains 175 strands of individually insulated #46 wire.
The # 46 wire size is the ideal gauge for the AM broadcast band, providing for the highest "Q" coils and
loop antennas. Equivalent wire size is 24 AWG and the wire diameter is .029"
Each strand of #46 wire is woven in a very specific pattern to minimize both skin effect and proximity
effect losses in the bundle.
27.01 Ohms/1,000' MAX DC RESISTANCE
30.01 Ohms/1,000' AC RESISTANCE AT 1 MHZ
OPERATING FREQUENCY 850 KHZ TO 1.4 MHZ
- Use it to build high Q loop antennas
- Wind high "Q" coils for your crystal sets
- The most effective traps
- Loop antenna performance is improved when using the Litz wire due to the higher "Q" factor
- Easy to solder with 30 watt soldering iron
- Crystal sets
- Higher "Q" means more stations
The wire cuts easily and solders with a simple 25 to 35 watt soldering iron. It is not even necessary to
pull off the nylon. Just solder right on top of it and the nylon melts back and seals the end.
