I and no doubt others would appreciate an update on your H-bridge DC coil.
It's been a year or two since you reported news about it. What has been the
highest BPS you have used? How does your spark length vs input power
compare with the usual AC TCs described on the list (John Freau & others)?
Any other innovations to report on?
