that`s impossible, only arc to ground can do that. or you are talkin
about breakpoint, which forces discharge as early as 100kv for
example? imo this can`t change much.

which models exactly? any papers about them? : )

coil with the same coupling but higher Fo would have higher "ert"
automatically, does it meant that this coil would have longer sparks
just from this? unlikely : )

no way : p we just haven`t necessary equipment - there is 5 mhz
single-beam single-channel, 15 mhz two-beam two-channel and 50 mhz
single-beam two-channel scopes lying here, but none of them is storage
or digital -_-

of coz you have - the "best man friend" like i`ve said : D
