[TCML] 60/50Hz Tesla Coil?

the secondary coil would be huge and not just by our standards but by
the standards of the builders of the pyramids in Egypt
something in the size range of 100 feet dia by 1000 feet tall the
length of wire would be somewhere near the distance a radio wave would
travel in 1/60th of a second
and imagine the cap and primary size to match probably need a zepplin
as a toroid ;)
a quick check on my math shows 5 million meters of wire
pretty much C/F where c = 3X10 to the 8th meterspersec and f = 60hz
and if you believe in the quarterwave length stuff 1.25 million
meters would be used but that changes with toroid size....
