The unwound piece then represents 1/8th the total resonant
Let's say the velocity factor on that piece changed from about
2 to about 1. Then the overall electrical length changed by
around a fraction 1/16th, say around 6% (disregarding any extra
capacitive loading on the resonator).
That would be consistent with the modest reduction of output
spark length observed.
