* Myth: Voltage magnification is much higher than the turns ratio of secondary to primary, attributed to 'resonant rise'.

(The voltage ratio is rather less than the turns ratio due to the
 limited coupling between the two coils.)

In a sparkgap/pulsed coil this is the case, but in a CW coil, resonant rise in a high Q resonator could account for some increased voltage.
