Re: [TCML] Tuning primary to secondary with a scope

To scope the secondary I just remove the RF earth and feed the signal into

There is a difference in the results gained between scoping them separately
(probably the correct manner) or with both sitting in situ on the coil, but
only around two or three  kilohertz, I find on mine. As Gary states it's
best to learn doing them separately, first of all, to avoid possible


and in real life, the resonant frequency of the secondary comes down from the capacitive loading of the sparks, once it starts to break out.
