You sure should be getting better streamers than that! I have a little
3" x 15" coil here, wound with #30 wire, and with a 15" x 3" toroid on
top. Primary uses 0.009 mfd total of ceramic HV filter capacitors, fed
from a 12 kV, 60 ma transformer. Get 24"+ streamers, with some a bit
longer; line current is about 5 amps. Performance is about the same
with a single straight gap or one of TCBOR's cylinder gaps, which I
prefer. This is a lousy setup, but works reasonable well.
