As a collector of tips and tricks that I can use when building radio stuff. I’m also a writer and I love sharing knowledge. When Todd, N0IP shared a tip that I can’t believe I didn’t think of myself, I just had to write it up! For the other three tips, see the link at the bottom.
Here’s Tip #4, in all its glory:
Yes, there’s a vise. There’s a pen. There’s a toroid being wound. There’s also… a counter! This will definitely make things easier, and save you from having to re-count.
This tally counter can be found online for a few bucks, or you can just download a tally counter app for your phone. I personally already have Click Counter (for Android) on my phone, and will be using it the next time I need to wind a toroid.
