If it was a SF6 style gap thing, it was well described in the TCBA
news... Since I forgot which issue, maybe the secret is still safe ;-))
Sounds like some others already pretty much new all about it... Of course,
if Bob made little tweeks or anything "special" to get it to work
(especially at those super power levels), those secrets are still safe ;-))
I forget what SF6 breaks down as (I "should" know that!)... SF4 is
probably one of the deadliest gasses known! But the bottom line is don't
go playing with these things unless you know what you are doing!!! Of
course, practically all the equipment in Bob's big coil could be very
dangerous!! Just falling off the giant thing could be fatal!!
Fortunately, I don't think most of us are going to run out and wind a coil
of that magnitude up tonight ;-))
Good warning about SF6. It used to be very expensive and hard to get hold
of. But that is not so true these days... Not something one should go
I was surprised that the coil seems to have been run over many years from
74 to 82 (?)!! I always thought it was just a one or two week
experiment. Most of the data seems to have been early on, but the later
stuff was probably secret. I thought I heard once that it was eventually
moved to some small mountain town in Colorado. Can you give any details
about what eventually became of the machine?
I have heard many accounts and spoken to people that actually saw the
machine working and everyone was super impressed!!!

told one whiff and it can put a person down. Much worse than ammonia.
Sorry that I have to say this but I have no choice.
