The unit was our standard model M-150 running with a 14.4 kV pole xmfr as
the power source. As to the measurement equipment, well, lets just say I
have some friends at a local university who "borrowed" (unofficially of
course --- and for only a 4 day period) some unique test equipment from a
well equipped physics dept and they took the measurements. Can't say much
more without shooting myself in the foot in case I might need some more
equipment for short term use in the future.
