Yes, you can put "orphan" toroids or rods to work, if you have some test
to make measurements with.
I suggest an antenna analyzer along the lines of the Autek VA-1, the MFJ
units or the
AEA unit. You need something that will indicate reactance, not just swr.
If you have access to such equipment, let's talk further.

Subject: [Elecraft] Toroids
With all the talk about toroids and baluns recently I decided to rifle
through the junk box looking for suitable cores. It appears that I have
plenty of all shapes and sizes but I have no idea of their individual
properties. Is there any way of identifying these unmarked devices so I
can put a few to good use?
