Yes, but I am still taking quantitative measurements with magnifier #13
(which ain't magnifying!).

I have now pushed the system to 100Amps of peak tank current using the .007
ufd cap.  Basically I'll have to go to back-to-back with H2 thyratrons if I
am to make #13 a true magnifier.  Right now the driver is just a huge pulse
forming transformer of low impedance.
