Secondary base is grounded. I removed the toroid and attached the scope
probe to the top secondary winding.
Shorted across the sparkgap and applied the signal across the primary.
Inner turn of primary is also at

Is there a relationship between the self resonant frequency of the
secondary and the test frequency? I
think this is the question at hand.
