Jim Lux may know such things.

If Tesla's data can be extracted, we may be able to determine what his
setup was as long as the measruments of "it" were accurate.  If we have
data points, we may be able to find the situation that matches it.

I was worried about posting it since it was sort of a flame.  Glade to see
you responded calmly :-)  That puts out the flames real fast :-))

That would be great.  That would provide a solid starting point "we" could
"all" understand.
