	Some have tried them.

	He made them early on.  He tried all manner of things at one
	time or another, coils with iron (wire) cores, coils in oil,
	tapered coils.

	It is, perhaps, significant that his next to last large coil
	did not have a conical secondary.  (Colorado Springs).
	I've no idea what was used at Wardencylffe.  (I suspect
	non-conical, but that's speculation...)
