Re: Streamer colour

Original poster: "Paul B. Brodie" <pbbrodie@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I looked at the photo of the Wendover coil and I would like to know more about it. Can you direct me to more information about it? The scale looks huge in the photo. Do you know of any photos that show the scale of the coil? Thanks.
