Subject: Resonant  rise in my obit.

I knew that matching the cap to the transformer caused a resonant rise, 
but I was unaware of exactly how great it could be.  I did a little test:

I hooked up my variac, with voltmeter, to my Webster OBIT.  I then 
connected the obit's HV outputs directly across 5 0.030" gaps in my 
cylinder static unit.  The gaps arc'd at a variac setting of exactly 121 
VAC.  Next, I connected my 0.006uF rolled cap across the gap, and it now 
begins to fire at 21 VAC input.  Almost a factor of 6 in voltage rise! 
That is pretty extreme.
