The Air Force had a large Marx generator set up at Kirkland AFB for
many years. They were testing the effects of EMP on aircraft. The test site
was a large wood platform in a gully, that the aircraft was parked upon.
The platform was big (and strong) enough that a B-52 could be parked on it.
The Marx's antenna was positioned over the test item. I never saw the
charging equipment, but the capacitor bank was in a Minuteman missle
container (7' square and 40' long). The cable was 10" in dia. with a #14
wire in the center. The EMP pulse can be 50KV/meter of wire. A B-52 is
about 150' long, almost a lightning strike. Kinda hard on all those
transistors running on 5V. lol
P.S. My current vertical VTTC has a 3CX3000F1, using my pig and a full-wave
rectifier, it pulls 80A at 140V input. This generates a 3' streamer. More
work is needed.
