" Keep in mind that the secondary terminal can be charged by more than one
break/charge before it will discharge. In that case the wattage per spark
length is doubled or tripled etc. per spark!
Can't believe that! It would require that the initial
primary gap breakdown be synchronous with the RF voltage in
the secondary, a highly improbable event unless you were running
a VT driven coil with grid drive to the tube derived by counting
down the secondary waveform.
