Re; Bert;

secondaries. Using the resonant approach, I can run off a pair of
15-60's with 18 gaps (0.5" total) and still hit 300 - 400 BPS. Without
the addtional charging current, this would not be possible. However...
I've also reconciled myself that (per Richard Hull) eventually my neons
are doomed!

Safe coilin' to you!

Bert; The portion of your note I've quoted above poses another question;
I run two 15/60's, (and sometimes three or four.) How do I compute the
C/L resonance equation when I have several secondaries paralleled together?

And while I'm at it, mighten I want to avoid, at least to some degree, too
much resonance between my neons and Cpri for the purpose of extending their
lives? I realize that in doing so I may compromise output but then, so does
a burned-out neon.
