"The point I was trying to make is that any improvement in performance
you'll make for a sparkgap coil is as good as zero. Typical TC
resonators already have Q's ranging from 150 to 300+ and most system
losses occur in the primary gap (and primary capacitors with lossy

	This is a point which should be repeated periodically.  Secondary Q is
not very important at all in TC matters.  It can be important to build
high Q coils for radio applications, but for TC's the primarly losses
and the low secondary Q once streamers start negate the value of high Q
