Minicircuits parts are quite expensive, so this was an attempt to reverse-engineer the TC1.5-1G2+ (without breaking it apart, because I need to use it).

Here are some pics (with a normal camera, and slightly better focussed with an inspection cam which is not colour unfortunately).

To me it looks like six turns of orange wire, and one turn of green wire. However, this minicircuits part is supposed to have an ohms ratio of 1.5 (sec:pri). That should mean 1.2 turns on the secondary, if the primary has 1 turn. Can anyone explain this? Basically, I want to design a transformer for 50 ohm to 75 ohm matching.

EDIT: – looks like I had read the datasheet wrong. The primary is the orange wire, and the secondary is the orange+green wires. There must be five turn of orange, which would give a sec/pri ratio of 6/5, i.e. 1.2.
