Re: V-27 tube coil: latest results

very interesting work. Is there any top load
on the coil? If not, do you think an arc would break out
in the staccato mode with top load? I have loaded top capacitance
(with one of your toroids) and adjusted the tank capacitance
and can get my CW tube coil to intensely arc over to a ground but not
break out to open air, however the RF field area is nasty.
