Hi all,
         I bumped up the power somewhat and also took some photos of 
the coil in action.
Details: Cp = 7.8nF, Vp just under 6kV, Ep = 140mJ, BPS = 230
which equates to a primary power of 32-odd Watts. I get attached 
single channel streamers about 25% of the time resonator - resonator
at a p-p distance of 5.5". A lack of corona control on the driven 
resonator would make bettering this difficult. I shall have to do 
something about that. Wall plug power has gone up to around 60W so 
the supply efficiency is down somewhat at this level. In fact it's 
now become mildly hazardous to adjust the gap while the coil is 
running due to the odd streamer roaring out in that direction.
