Hi Alan,

In an email from 15.12.97 08:06:47 MEZ, you wrote:

I have some informations about TC's, but nothing about a magnifier coil.

Can you tell me more about MC's? ..or give me a hint for a mc-book?

I think, I can handle up to 100khz without problems, the transformer will be
cheaper and will have fewer resital losses.

What's the difference between a TC and a MC in there effects?
Is a MC more efficient, more difficult or (because it has no spark gap and so
eventually even easier to build?
