I wish to make it absolutely clear that I am not talking about 4"
coronas, feathers and the like. I am talking about 4" of heavily
ionized single channel plasma-type attached sparks (with most of the
power concentrated in them). I can get 7" purple wisps
concentrated in a band between the two resonators at that power level.
