At a higher test frequency, the results would be better for some
of the wires and worse for others. I don't know about the braid.
The form the wire tests took sprang from a discussion on the best
type of conductor to connect the secondary base to the ground stake.
In short, the test simply measured the differences in conductor types
at a single frequency representative of a large number of coils. It
wasn't terribly detailed but did indicate problems with the braid
which were verified in actual operation.
