But just think of the increase in breaks per second if WE went to
400hz power. I was just talking  with a Power Company friend of mine
yesterday about how cheep 400 Hertz equipment is.

Then we could go to 400 cycle (oops Hertz;)  3 phase and get virtually
CW output. On the down side, I not sure how my 10kVA pole pig would
react to 400 Hertz. And I don't even want to think about having to
move 3 of them, just to set up;(   Lets see, 7 pounds of TC and 700
pounds of pig;) And don't forget the 3 asynchronous rotary gaps to
