Re: WWT2007 Teslathon
Original poster: "resonance" <resonance@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
I dropped by. It was a great Teslathon. Jeff Mullins did some neat
physics demos, Dr. Hank ran his coils, Hal of Tucson has a very nice
medium size coil sprouting 4 ft sparks. Christopher Hooper had an
amazing thermion demo and his large 10 kVA DRSSTC coil fired up 16
footers to start burning paint on the ceiling --- the spark was white
hot with loads of current. Chris's horizontal bi-polar coil was
really neat with all the internal UV LEDs inside the acrylic parts
imparting a surreal light to everything.
A very nice show with a lot of people trying to not freeze as
darkness approached on an unusually cold AZ night.
The second anual Winter Western Teslathon was a great success
despite the last minute change in venue due to weather.
I wish to personally thank those who helped set up and make this
year such a success! Hope to see you all again next year!
P.S. Pictures of this year's events should be up on Dr. Spark's web
site soon: <mailto:azdrspark@xxxxxxx>azdrspark@xxxxxxx
