Question on tank circuit

  1. Apr 6, 2009 #1
    I'm building a tank circuit and I need to have an output and a ground connection. The type of circuit is a parallel LC tuned circuit. I just don't know where the connections should be placed. Does it matter for the circuit to operate properly. If someone can give me an answer to this or tell me where I can find the information that would be very much appreciated

    There is generally two ways to tap an LC tank, either capacitively or inductively. To tap capacitively, split the capacitor into two capacitors in series, and their junction can be the output, and alternatively, place another inductor close to inductor in the tank, and that will serve as an output too.

    Is the tank ckt connected between the high voltage dc and the (vacuum tube) plate (anode)? e.g., 6L6's or 807's?
