Always feel free to ask questions!  A lot has changed recently and many of
the "old" answers are no longer valid.  The discussions of spark gaps,
streamer behaviour, 1/4 wave theories, etc. were all old questions that
fired up many new answers.  We just needed a spark to get it started!

Just don't ask about "raising the secondary"!  :-))
