I joined the list just recently and feel pretty lost because of all the
abreviations. But, could you just give an approximate cost of one system vs.
the other. (Spark gap vs.
DRSSTC) I'm not one of the members who has deep pockets, but I would like to
utilize the most efficient system I can afford.
Also, I notice that there are several types of Spark Gap systems including
on that uses a synchronous motor.
