Last night I wound a small pickup coil using a 1.5" dia plastic toroid. I
wound about 70 turns of #26 insulated wire on it and ran the main secondary
ground wire through it. Running the coil about one half power (about 24"
discharges) I still measure no voltage from the pickup coil - even on the 5
volt AC scale. I can't figure this out, I thought there was a lot of current
flowing in the ground wire. Is this a frequency response problem with my
Simpson volt meter?
Thanks, Ed Sonderman
