RE: Terry's DRSSTC - Strike Rail

Original poster: "Mccauley, Daniel H" <daniel.h.mccauley@xxxxxxxx>


That 1/2" split is probably to little.  I have captured corona discharge
(via photos) between the ends of my strike rail with a 2 inch gap on my
DRSSTC system.  I'm using about 4 inches of gap right now.

Any reason you chose to use a flat primary design as opposed to solenoid
type.  You probably did mention this before, but i haven't been reading
the list too much lately.
