Hi Barry, all,

Yes, I can fire at 60Hz, with lock up to either polarity, but I don't
see how that would affect it, the RF will still be the same basically.
I guess the first oscillation would be of an opposite polarity in each
case though, is this what you're refering too?  Just happens I was
thinking of re-exploring 1xFmains firing rate.  So I may give it a try.
