	Everyone with similar interests should by Fink's "NEON SIGNS",
available from Lindsay pubs for a very low price.  Although originally
written in 1935, it contains answers to all of the NST questions I have
seen posted here.  I recommend it to all, even though it includes the
interesting remark that the main danger from getting across the
secondary of an NST is in falling off the roof, not in electrocution. 
Guess he never performed an experiment on that!
