You still haven't read pages A-22 and A-23 in Richard Hull's book that I
referenced you to some time ago, have you?
What David is trying to say is that it just doesn't matter whether you
use "single or double" insulation if the coil is designed, built and
tuned properly! If someone wants to opt for extra insulation on their
secondary wire for a little (very little) extra insurance against
arcover during the tuneup process, great, oterwise it just doesn't
How can you have a volts per turn parameter in your program when in
reality the turn to turn voltage in a real live secondary or extracoil
isn't uniform from bottom to top?
