Re: Magnifiers vs. normal TC's, was secondary wavelength

Gee Ed!  I only know what I read, and I take all that I read with a grain
of salt.  Tesla was not a "deity" .   He was a man with thoughts light
years ahead of what we know today.  I was not there when Tesla made his
experiments in any of his labs.  But neither were you!  But his surviving
work and patents speak for themselves.  All that he knew was not
preserved for us in writing.  All I know is what I see around me.  And I
see everywhere in our world the actual effects of Tesla's work.  And
every time I fire up my coil I marvel at Tesla the man!   Al.
