Glad your here. Text talk via phone will be difficult. BTW, yes I did
realize your "spelling" of Arc Angel (if you wondered). I may even refer
to you as the "Arc Angel", but first, we need "more power" in the sparks
for the name to fit.
Others are better at MOT's than I (I've ran only a 2 MOT system, but
long ago, so memory is lacking).
Regarding your rotary gap: Your highest prediction of 2500 rpm with 8
electrodes is 333 bps. No problem. To make a better longer sparking
coil, build a bigger coil (between 4:1 and 5:1 h/d) and with a diameter
above 4". Keep the turns from 800 to 1300 and use the wire diameter
which accompanies these parameters for close-wound coils, and you'll
have a good coil capable of sparks much longer than your little coil.
BTW, can you view web pages or pdf files with your phone? If yes, here
is a schematic of an excellent running coil that is only 4.5"D x 21"L
using an NST.
Here is a link to photo's of this coil.
