Re: Neonics wonderland!!!!
Good questions. I think it would depend a lot on the spark gap setting. We
usually run ours close --- 2 or 3 gaps set around .060 or .070 each with a
blower fan behind them. I suppose one could freeze it on a storage scope
and calculate the area under the curve as an average value. It is weird
because of their current control link, but primary power should equal
perhaps 110-115% of secondary power under operational load. Just a guess.
How's your health?? Missed you this year but will get out there again next
winter. I hear Nick at Highway Electronics might be selling off a lot of
goodies this winter as he's really getting old --- somewhere around 87 I
