RE>WinTesla Ver 2.0
I like and have used WinTesla especially for "What If's" with students.
It's great and easy to use and understand as it stands, but, 

I often push limits so I would like to see defaults expanded, like
  PRI dia >>20"  99? (what dia is necessary put all needed L in 1 or 2 turns)
  SEC >36" seems pretty large but why not a little larger ? 99?

If I had the source code I might add a DC Excitation section such that the
CAP value could be arbitrary (unrestrained - lots of good what if's) , variable 
Current available determines time constant and spark rate possible for static
gap model for a particular Vcap.  I use DC alot to control and better understand 
whats going on - easier to scope, less chaos. This option needs some barin
storming to determine what features are most desriable.

To all who use WinTesla,

In an attempt to further my programming knowledge and contribute to the
experimenters with ozone fever, I am working on WinTesla Ver 2.0 using
Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0.  Version 1.0 was built using Borland Delphi Pascal.
I am planning to add a edit box for adding comments on a design, and some
other user donated enhancement ideas I've been collecting for the past few

I haven't had too many comments (good or bad) about the program this far, and
I would like to know what you think about the program, and what improvements
are needed.  Send me a note at rscopper-at-aol-dot-com with your comments and

If I don't receive any comments, I will assume this project should be
cancelled and the current product is acceptable.

BTW I purchased an 811A and a 572B at Dayton, and am in the process of
building  a tube coil for grins.  So far I have some hot glowing tubes, but no
sparks yet - tuning isn't easy.........
