Agreed, a SNAFU.

Hopefully he returns.

In other news...
I built another set of coils for 4Mhz, It's the upper end of the amateur radio band and should prove to be more difficult to receive on. Although I'm not getting any 'sound' I did notice one thing of interest, with no circuit load there is little to no voltage potential, set up a load and the potential climbs. at the moment it'll fluctuate between .7~1 volt of potential between the ground plane and radial ground antenna. capacitance value is critical and I'm going to sit and see what I can calculate to tune this.

The larger crystal set is awaiting wider copper strap at the moment.
