	you would think, that after 30 years of using an ohm meter,
that I would be able to multiply 27 * 100 and arrive at the correct
number, but I can't:(

I just went out and measured the Rdc of my 3 secondaries,

	the Jefferson Electric 15KV 60mA	2700 ohms.
	the  (other)                      15KV 60ma   	3200 ohms
	the Franceformer         15KV 30mA	9000 ohms.

I also am finding out that it does take practice and skill to use a
LCR bridge.

	thanks for keeping me honest.
