Hi All,

I read a posting awhile back to the effect that over-coupled Tesla
coils were subject to "bandsplitting".  Does that mean breaking up
into harmonics, or what?  I've been employed in comm/nav electronics
for many years, plus I've dabbled in amateur radio for 10 years 
(N5QMR), but the term is unfamiliar to me.

The same posting implied that Tesla magnifiers were immune to 
bandsplitting.  Why is that?  What difference does it make if the 
resonator is over driven by magnetic coupling or by a transmission 

Curious in dreary East Anglia,
