In a 2N3904 common emitter RF amplifier circuit that I am building, the designer uses a FT37-43 miniature core with an 8 turns primary : 2 turns secondary ratio to couple to the next stage. I understand the purpose, it is impedance matching between the two stages.
My question is, what would the consequences be for using a 16:4 turns ratio instead of 8:2? The ratio is the same so the impedance match should be the same but I am thinking don't do it for these reasons: the larger number of turns will reduce the power capacity as you will saturate the core at a lower signal level, the inductance seen at the collector of the 2N3904 would be four times as great, the Q factor drops because of the 2x resistance of the added wire, and physically fitting that many turns may not be possible.
Any other reasons?
