As we used to say in the effects biz.. "all ya gotta do" is scale
everything... Chris's tube is probably about the size of a baseball bat
(a meter long and 10cm in diameter)... so scaling up by a factor of
5000.. his 100kHz tube will be 5km long and 500 meters in diameter.
Then he'll need a new electron gun of comparable size.
Not hideously complex, but probably going to require a larger building
than he now has.
