We know that Tesla was using the flat spiral coil as a
spread-spectrum wireless transmitter. He may have increased the
spacing of the inner turns in order to facilitate the occurance of harmonics."
We do? The description here would appear to be a of a regular
two-circuit Tesla coil and he is apparently referring to the two
different frequencies which can be produced while the primary is
being excited. It would be interesting to see how he would calculate
them, based on his statement about radily calculated. I haven't seen
any discussion of the topic at that early date although it was
certainly well known within a few years.
