Default Rewinding a rheostat to make it a variable iunductor

I came up with this idea to make a tiny antenna tuner. Thought maybe I
could remove the wire on a rheostat and rewind it with copper wire so I
can make a long wire antenna tuner .

Hmmm...not a bad idea. I have no use for a Miracle Whip antenna, but
I think I'll try that approach as another alternative to Phil Salas,
AD5X's portable vertical base matching techniques. It might even be
feasible for the tuneable component of a center loading coil. I'm
gonna do some experimentin'!
