        I hate to disagree with you, especially since you have achieved
results so far beyond mine as to make my achievements laughable, but
Richard Quick  (where'd you go, dude?), who used to be on the USA-TESLA
list and others, produced 60" plus from a conventional 2 coil system
an air-blast, 2 electrode gap.  There used to be plans for them in the
archives, but I haven't been through _those_ in about a year and a half.
        I have always wondered why this gap system hadn't come into
popular use, and also where Richard went, since he used to be a fixture
this and the FIDO net electronics echo.
