You are from France? Like, in Europe? (The message

We do have such a pleasure very often, either on This
List or on The Internet itself!
It seems to me that after you Frenchmen invented
your own "Internet", i.e. your fabulous Minitel,

T>Hi young coilers,
T> I remember ...
T>Exposition de Paris , 1937- not my earliest recollection : ' (
T>Palais des lumières , Paris , France , Europe ; -)

ago? So you're at least 70-80? Congratulations!!
I thought I was the FUOM of The List (among
several others), but I doff my cap to
T>A bipolar vacuum Tesla coil ??
T>HF generator : 250 kW radio broadcast .
T> Lenght of wave : 187 m ( 1,62 Mhz)
T> Vacuum tubes : 400 W oscillator , 2 x 20 kW water cooled triodes ,
[ ... ]
Sacre bleu! Such details!
You can't possibly have such a vivid memory -- so you
must have some literature, photographs, motion pictures??
Qu'es que ce?
Anything you can digitize? And post -- to The List, or
it's FTP site??
Many of us would be utterly fascinated!!
T>2 x 120 kW final triodes.
T> Plate voltage : 5000 V (/ Hg kenotron )
T> Heater : 30 V -at- 600 A ( / dynamo 1 )
T> Control grid 700 V ( / dynamo 2 )
T>2 x 1/4 wave magnifiers ( 2 towers without terminal but
T>with a horizontal adjustable carbon electrode ) , standed near
T>an ornemental lake ( for an optical effect and triodes cooling).
T>Lightning sparks 7 m ( 23 ' )
Who sponsored this spectacle? The time period is such
that it might have been Dr. Tesla himself on stage.
