Yes, Marc's 3k coil would be one where Zo is probably near 96k. That's one
coil that would have to be accounted for. The 36k number may be just one of
those quantities that similar coils fall in and around because the coils
are similar in many ways. Marc built outside the norm and I remember Marc
being quite adoment about this coils performance. Marc's firing voltage was
about 34kV and is probably the key to this coils success.

Length issues aside.... Marc Metlicka made a TC with 3000 secondary
turns. I have no clue what the Zo is for this Tc is, but, as I recall,
it vastly outperformed the "John Freau Efficiency Equation."
I also recall he was using a 33kV PT as a power source and that some
thought the unusually high primary voltage could have been a player in the
extraordinary performance. There are figures and measurements in the
pupman archives for this beast - he called it the 3k coil.

Hence I think there is fairly good evidence for my theory. If anyone knows
of any good coils with Zo greatly different from 36k, please let us know.
