Re: [TCML] DC base driven coil
In a message dated 3/12/2008 4:56:05 P.M. US Eastern Standard Time,
If I remember correctly, the base of the secondary connected directly to the
HV-side of the DC-charged cap. There was not a separate isolation cap. The
capacitance of the cap was so large relative to Fo that it had no impact on
the tuning of the coil. AC-wise, the cap looked like a short circuit.

Yes that makes sense. I think you're correct. No need for two types of
caps. The cap handled both isolation and DC energy storage.
