This is not necessarily true. I'm not sure of the details, but John Freau
from the Tesla coil builders of New Jersey, an avid tube coiler, is
building a tube coil designed by Dave Sharpe of the Richmond group that
uses a rotary spark gap. Maybe Richard Hull would be able to give more
information if we asked nicely (please, please, please Richard!).
