Re: Rotary Vs Stationary

On a 4 inch size or 6 inch size dia sec coil a series of 3 subdivided
sparkgaps (in series) works great with a 200-250 cfm blower mounted right
behind the gaps (1 1/2 inches away).  On coils over 8-10 inch dia then a
synchro with NST works very good.  Don't use a NST with a non-snychro RSG or
you will probably blow it out.
