By RQ I assume you mean Richard Quick, I am not familiar with this
arrangement. Is the capacitor directly across the transformer or is 
it in series with the primary and the spark gap across the 
transformer? What I was speaking of is the condition where the static 
or rotary gap is directly across the transformer.
