[TCML] first light!
Finished my coil today - finally. Just gave it a rapid try -I will bring it
to the Cambridge (UK) teslathon tomorrow and tune it there. Anyway IT
secondary in 10.4 cm/4 inches diameter, 1200 turns, fed by a 6000V/30mA NST
I got some sparks about a feet long - I did not expect to see them float
around and move the way they do - this is the first time I've seen a TC in
Next things to do is to build a RSG, put the Terry filter and the MMC in a
better looking box, and move to a new home so I can get a real RF ground.
The chicken wire counterpoise looks very cheap.
The fishes in the fish tank still look okay - maybe they'll turn into
electric eels later.
many thanks to all for your help and patience, especially BartB for detailed
explanations, DC Cox, Gary Lau (though he did not like my liquid primary
idea!), Chris for cutting PPE disks on his lathe and all the others. Special
thanks to Chip for maintaining the list. Guys, your dedication and kindness
is making this list work. Ah, and your extensive knowledge too.
