I hear you talking about a static spark gap being almost as good as your
sync rotary. Can you give me your static spark gap receipe. I run a 6" x
21.5 inch coil with 14nF , 15Kv 60MA and an 8 static gap system. I have
only achieved 30" sparks so far

Also do you use any protection other than a saftey gap with your neons ?

Thanks again
