Re: GFI on the NST--a bummer

It would seem to me that if you have a good RF ground and protection circuit
ala Terry Fritz,  you probably won't trip the GFI.   I used to run my coil on a
circuit in the house with a GFI and only tripped it once,  when a misfiring
occurred.   It doesn't seem like it could hurt to try anyway.
