Might be a good idea, but in hot flaming action where the current
hard and fast, the Fr's might move about a bit on their own.  Separately
testing them with a sig. gen. might be just an innocent exercise....
tickling the dragon's tail.  Even in parallel, they are still mutually
inductively coupled.  It ain't like two far removed coils in parallel.

  In THEORY they should have the same currents and potentials on each
matching, right?......riigghhttt!  In theory, maybe, I think, I
hope,.... oh
please let them be the same!!!  

Good luck.  It's by doin' crap like this that the whole business moves
onward and upward.  When someone says it can't be done or won't work,
is like a signal to me that starts me movin off ta' do it.
