You do nice work. I have to admit, I'm not much of an artist when it comes
to building coils.
But from the setup of your three coils, I can clearly see it is a different
animal altogether from what I'm talking about.
Your second and third coils are clearly inductively coupled. And you are
correct in your description, this is not a "classic magnifier" as in the
sense Tesla developed it. You will not see a zero-current mode of operation
as long as the third coil is inductively coupled to the second coil.
It is my understanding that a zero-current mode of operation will have a
maximum potential and be completely resonant within the third coil. As I
understand it, this is a longitudinal resonance which affects electrons
differently than does a transverse resonance. If I understand correctly,
the longitudinal resonance will allow for power transmission to far greater
distances than would a transverse resonance. This is possible because the
longitudinal resonance acts like a closed system and can store energy in the
environment. When energy is tapped at some distance, a tunnel effect occurs
as the system only needs to replenish the energy being removed between the
transmitter and receiver.

Regardless of what you call it, at least now I can understand what you are
referring to. Thanks for the clarification.
