    Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful!!! Great pics, Richie.  I'm developing my
own low-tech CW coil right now, which will utilize some little used arc-gap
technology from the turn of the century (the poulsen arc).  It's nice to know
some of the characteristics of sparks driven by half wave, fullwave, and
continuous sources.  I will be able to experiment with all three of these
forms with my current planned setup, and if I'm able to voice modulate it I
might get a taste of making my own waveforms : P
    Thanks again!
