Ed and the group,
Tesla might have used two separate primaries in Colorado Springs as
well. The master oscillator's top turn could have been configured as
a single primary turn. (Corum & Corum; see
http://teslascience.org/archive/descriptions/CS018.htm for a photo
showing the top turn.)
Instead of a second primary tank circuit, it is likely that Tesla
would have used a low frequency alternator configured to give
relative widely spaced successive pulses with a very fast rise time.
Talking about one of the alternaters he used in his wireless
transmission experiments Tesla said,
"I reduced the number of poles . . . for the purpose of
generating currents of higher frequency. If I had a great number of
poles, I could not realize my idea, because these poles would come in
quick succession and not produce a rate of change comparable to the
rate of change which is obtainable by the discharge of a condenser
owing to a sudden break of the dielectric. That is to say, a
blow. It has to be a blow, you see. I had to place my poles
comparatively far apart, then run them at excessive speed and
generate comparatively few impulses, but each of those impulses are
of such tremendous intensity that the dynamo is practically
short-circuited. That gave me a blow which replaced the arc. . . .
The output of the machine was about 8 kilowatts. . . ." [Nikola Tesla
On His Work With Alternating Currents . . ., p. 15]
In this case the ELF excitation of the desired earth resonance mode
would not be sinisoidal, such as the product resulting from the
beating of two closely-spaced LF oscillations.

They'd have to be separate and loosely coupled, no? I wouldn't think the
nearly-identical coils could drive the same main terminal. Wouldn't one
of them see the other one as a short to ground? I don't know what
with quarter-wave waveguides, but connecting two parallel resonant RLC
tanks together doesn't give beats, it gives 2x lower frequency. If you
wanted to inject 100KHz and 100.001KHz into the same antenna, you'd need
some sort of big matching network."
I found the reference. It's in "Inventions, Researches, and Writings"
[Of Nikola Tesla], Second edition, 1992 Barnes and Noble reprint, pp
202-204. He starts out by pointing out the difference between the
discharges of his demo coil and that of a static machine.
"Now compare this phenomenon which you have just witnessed with the
discharge of a Holtz or Wimshurst machine - that other interesting
appliance so dear to the experimenter. [He previously mentioned
conventional induction coils.] What a difference there is between these
two phenomena! And yet, had I made the necessary arrangements, ..... I
could have produced with this coil sparks which, had I the coil hidden
from your view and only the two knobs exposed, even the keenest observer
among you would find it difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish
from those of an influence or friction machine. This may be done in
many ways .." He mentions some and then goes on to say "Another way is
to pass through two primary circuits, having a common secondary, two
currents of slightly different period, which produce in the secondary
sparks occurring at comparatively long intervals. ......" Same point as
. . .
