If the output from an electronic neon was rectified and suitably protected 
from the rf, probably by large chokes on the dc side, could one use an 
electronic neon in a tc?
I cannot see why not, unless 32kHz presents any problems for the rectifiers 
that I am unaware of ? 
The electronic units are quite cheap for their power output against 
conventional transformers and have adjustable voltage and current limiting 
making them more versatile than the conventional units - the unit I have seen 
could be programmed to go from 3-9kV and 30-60ma.
