Hi all,
         As a result of this series of experiments, I now think one 
of the primaries typically used in twin coil systems is redundant.
The only requirement for energy transfer is that it gets to the 
system as a whole. The current is efficiently transferred from the 
base of the driven coil to the base of the free-standing one. Also,
resonator winding directions no longer matter because the operating 
mode is now different. Perhaps someone with a larger twin system 
could check it out and let us know please.
