In general, you want your coupling to be around 0.15 If it is too high
(>0.20) then you may get arcs along the secondary coil that can damage it.
If it is too low (<0.12) then you may loose secondary streamer power.
I would start at the lowest level where the primary is level with the
bottom turn of the secondary. If you get secondary arcs along the coil,
then raise the secondary up until the arcs go away. When you are just
above the point that the secondary arcs along the coil you are at the
