Just a few lines for now concerning ur coil.
at first glance it would seem that ur secondary
is closer to 275 K.C. in length (1/4) wave ----
Neons have their H.V. center-tapped & grounded
to the core (for safety's sake) so you still have
the total voltage of one of them (if connected in series).
I'd suggest connection in parallel --- (or, for tuning purposes-
use just one )
Have you an oscilloscope / pulse generator
to test the steady state vs. ringing frequency (per Thompson's Rule )?
I'd also suggest using one spark gap for tuning ---------
If this is new nomenclature for you --- I'll do my best to
clear it up in a later post (tomorrow ?? )
