Re: Bug zappers

Yeah, i just started t get the tar out of one this weekend so i can get to 
the shunts. It gives 4kV and 9mA, so you get 36w out of it. I want more 
watts, so i put it in the Bar-B-Que and let it cook. ONE THING: Do NOT leave 
it in upside down! I had it sitting upside down in an  Al tray and it melted 
out and started to burn and it smelled like crap. Anyway, they are very 
suitable for tiny coils, with or without removed shunts. By the way, is 
there anyone out there who can explain how a shunt works?

P.S.-That epoxied thing is most likley a cap. If you really want, it could 
be you tank cap if it has a decent resonant capacitance;-)
