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.
