Re: stepped leaders

Richard, Robert, Everybody,
           Thank you for your support and encouragement. I work in an 
educational establishment and it is a place steeped in both teaching 
and learning. I'm here on the list to do both, and I have been 
handsomely rewarded by notes, components and books sent to me as well
as the wisdom of others here. I love electricity and wish to pursue 
learning about it for as long as I'm able. I have many more 
experiments planned and will happily post any results I get. My only 
regret is that decent thunderstorms are so few and far between in my 
particular location.

Thank you all,
