Actually, I've been thinking and reading about making coils and I think it would be a blast to actually do a pair that would work.

I've scrounged the wire from a battery operated clock. It's .003" dia. which looks about right. The JMP receiver I have drives 50 ohm coils so I'll have to get that many turns.

The problem is to get kick started in selecting one of the many methods posted. I was hoping somebody had a new, hot, nearly painless method developed in the last two quiet years.

The neatest job I've seen is by Ralph Bradley on his Yard Master. (See pic below) I've PM'd Ralph and asked him to come in and tell us some of the details.
