   radio works fine.
   Spark gap coils are noisy, would have slow data rate.

    As small as shosen.
    secondaries an inch or so long have been described.
     Such are inherently low power.

   (How wide is wide, numerically?)

   A 'Tesla Coil' is a power user, rather than a power source.
   It would drain the battery faster.

   Unless whole new physics be invented, of which there is no sign.
