Re: Winding Secondary

>> > Subject: Re: Winding Secondary

I was just wondering why we use air core secondary windings. In all the high
frequency transformers I have seen, there is a ferrite core. The information
below did not mention any effects of using a ferrite core on a Tesla coil.
Would it work with ferrite as the coil former?

I also have a radio Ham friend who has a 5kw RF generator with a resonant
cavity output. Can this power supply be hooked up to a TC primary and work?

What is a resonant cavity anyway and can it be used in Tesla coil applications?
