Steve hi

6 inches from a pole pig sounds a bit on the small side.
The coil brian and myself built used OBITS for about 1Kw at 10Kv four of
in parell the secondary is 4.25" by 22" we are usuing two toroids and
salt water bottle caps.
The gap is the norm (RQ) with a small muffin fan on top.
To date the discharge has hit 26" to a grounded post.
