Re: connection to extra coil
Large flat transmissions lines are superior. See my magnifier kicking out
12+ foot sparks. http://users.ticnet-dot-com/bertpool/GARAGE~1.JPG
Transmission line is made of aluminum flashing. I expected corona on the
edges, but got zero corona, and that was with an incredibly high driver
voltage. The voltage spreads out over the large flat surface and doesn't
even see the edges. Every round pipe transmission line I've seen has
corona. Try it, Mikey, you'll like it.
