yes, you could vary the streamer length and shape
> 2) What effect will varing the current do for the output
it will play havoc on tuning the coil and beat up your caps plus you
wont be able to use much more than 30KV on the output side unless you do
some SERIOUS insulative work on the wiring and primary coil and to add,
you will need some very hearty caps to handle the voltage

I dont but there probably is someone out there who does...

probably 4-7K$ to do it right
