Anyone who has ever scoped the secondary activity on a disruptive coil
can see that all activity is over long, long, long before the start of
the next bang.  With the inherent losses in any secondary system, this
just is the way it is.
Gary Lau

"In the practical carrying out of any of the plans described it is essential to the attainment of good results that all the apparatus be constructed and operated under careful observance of the rules which have been fully set forth in the application referred to at the beginning. Unless they are closely adhered to the insertion of a composite tuned system in a resonating circuit, instead of accomplishing the object sought, may prove detrimental. The requirements indispensable to successful use of the invention are: first, very small distributed capacity in the coils; second, extremely low ohmic resistance of all conductors including the connections and coatings of condensers; third, insignificant electro-magnetic radiation; fourth, minimum loss in the capacities through dielectric hysteresis and leakage and, fifth, a number of units such as will insure the best performance in any given case. It is to be added, however, that each of the individual condensers should be of a capacity equal to that of the antenna, though this relation may be departed from, more or less, without serious drawback." -- Nikola Tesla, ca. 1916
