What is C3?

I am going to a hamlets tomorrow hoping to pick up most of the basic components for my Paraset build. I am confused over the component C3 (at least thats the reference in the drawing I am using). It is connected to pin 3 of the 6V6. The drawing looks like a wire from pin 5 is wrapped around the wire...

Re: Capacitor values

So I pulled some tuning capacitors from some old 40's radios.
They are 200 and 400 pF. I am looking at adding 200pF in series to make the range 30-100pF.
Any issue with this approach?

Capacitor values

Looking at available schematics they all show the three variable capacitor to be 100 micro micro farads. Are they 100 micro farads? Or is the double micro a reference to something else?

I ave been a fan of WW2, particularly British involvement and SOE so my interest in building the Paraset is as much to replicate the orig...
