RE: [TCML] RF Ground and Brass
Has nothing to do with that. If you have 1kV of RF voltage at the base
of your secondary, you can bet your shiny butt there is going to be some
nasty hash at your MAINS.

If the top of the secondary ends up at 400kV, then a kV drop on the
ground wire amounts to 1/4 of 1%. Pretty insignificant.
