I have long stated that I consider the magnifiers which I build,
distributed resonator systems. The tune is based on best performance
only!! It may or may not be related to the secondary Fr.
The best combinations have a secondary to resonator Lcoil ratio of
about3:1 to 5:1. The best systems involve the use of very heavy wire in
the driver (10-12 gauge). Resonators are best in the 2.5:1 L/D ratio.
The real secret is in electrostatic field control with multiple toroidal
loadings. This includes a sizable toroid on the base of the resonator.
The highest input voltage possible should be used coupled with a very
small tank capacitance.
These are all gross generalizations and extremes may exist in any
configuration provided synergistic shepherding of components and power
distributions throughout the system is maintained.
