A long time ago I saw the Corums use a wavguide that was 1/4 wave long 
as a Tesla Coil. It worked. It had no termination and it produced a 
discharge. Why not a TC with no top load?"

	What was the wavelength the Corums used, what was the power, and
where and and how big was the arc?  As for a TC without top load, we all
have built them at one time or another - haven't you?  Of course, if one's
objective is long stramers, coils with top loads of some sort or another
work much better.
