A comment on atmospheric pressure vs. spark length.
I was recently stunned to learn from one of our customers that a coil which
had made 3-4' sparks in Colorado (5300' ASL) was making 5-6' sparks in
Indiana (500' ASL). Humidity was about the same, according to NWS
Geez, I'd love to get my big coil (12'+ sparks without the new series
rotary gap, which is in progress) down to sea level!
