Re: Schematics?

Hi Alex,

Coils been successfully done both ways. HOWEVER, data from a large population shows that the median life expectancy of an NST is much greater with the gap across the transformer than with the cap across the transformer. Consult the archives for the physics behind the practice.
Hope this helps.
