Hey Yatta let me know how those sound when you get them going and dialed in. I'm thinking of picking up a set to play around with.

yep the X is actually a plus (ie postive ) duuuuuuuh

pulled out the trusty multimeter and that was it

weird thing is that it read at 6.3 ohms

is that the actual impedance or what?

anyway off to tuning land :)

DMM will read the DC Resistance of the coil, ie, "Re".

"x" looks very similar to "+"

It's the dc resistance, not the impedance. You could measure the impedance curve yourself, but it varies with frequency and the process is a bit more involving.
