Re: ISSTC HITS 55" No tuning yet

My coil has no details up yet,  once I have it set and tuned I will do a
write up on it and post it on my site.

I am using two 4700F capacitors in a doubler arrangement.  I am using the
same IGBTs as Steve and Dan.

My coil is currently the largest (working) ISSTC (not DRSSTC Jimmy... ;-))
I am using .15F of tank capacitance and a 6" by 30" secondary coil.

I added another 10,000F across the rails last night,  and the improvement
was moot. I think I'm going to need more capacitance in the doubler.
