Excellent. And, doing it at the last minute is always the best way. Eliminates "Analysis Paralysis"

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
action face-to-face.

Yeah.. if you're used to seeing still photos, the movement aspect is interesting.
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.

Get a piece of wood or carpet and put the chicken wire on the bottom. Something like one of those split bamboo window shades would be great. Rolls up, looks nice, etc.
