RE: Secondary

A secondary should be wound long enough to not arc end-to-end.  Based on
this alone, the 30" option might be capable of longer arcs.  But
Wintesla tells me that 30" of #22 would have 1090 turns, and 24" of #24
would have 1100 turns.  Is your wire more heavily insulated than normal?
I would go with 30" of #24 for 1375 turns.  My own 6" secondary uses 28"
of #26 for 1734 turns.
