I don't have a wire chart for square wire so I don't know what
the resistance per 1000 feet should be. However, I measured
the DC resistance at 25.0 ohms which seems about right given
the wire charts I do have.

Are you suggesting that I rewire my secondary with #0ga.
welding cable and hoist it way up in the air? :)
