Improvements have been made over the last two days
with my coil. Opening the gaps up (5 gaps, 6tubes)
made quite a difference. The breakout is quite
energetic but erratic. More work on the gap system
appears to be where I should be spending some time.
Still running the small (3X20) torroid. I have a
pretty good understanding of where I am at with this
setup and will go bigger on the torroid when this one
I bought 4ga welding cable yesterday and will re-do my
tank wiring again. That 4ga "house" wire I'm running now
is garbage compared to the construction and flexibility of
the welding cable. Still trying to find or build a "clip"
of some type for the moveable tap on the primary. The
battery charger alligator clip I'm using gets HOT. Thats
probably contributing the the lackluster performance I've
been experiencing recently.
