<< Subject: New Coil
 Announcing the birth of a new coil. The 6" dia secondary, neon coil was
 to life Monday night the 19th of August around 8pm. It took about 30 mins to
 connect and get tuned to throw 32 inch arcs.
 Details of coil are:
 	60ma neon transformer
 	dead air arc gap (sealed in plexiglass)
 	home built cap (with help from Chip)
 	6 inch (around 1000 turns) secondary
 	1/4 inch cu 11 turn primary (we found that 8 turns looked the best)
 spaced 		5/8" on centers
 	4' duct toroid soldered between steel pie plates
 	one 8 foot cu covered ground rod
