The fine tune button works on both Netscape and Internet Explorer. I have
noticed browsers handle javascripts differently and would guess that AOL may
have difficulty. I haven't tried it with AOL (I'm assuming that AOL has it's
own browser?). What I do is manually enter turns to get the secondary and
primary frequency's pretty close then use the fine tune button, but it's not
necessary - you can do it manually if AOL is having a problem. I'm not a
programer and this was actually my first try at JavaScript - I know there are
better ways to perform this function.

I typically use 120bps for static gap setups, but a static gap bps is set via
gap breakover voltage meaning the gap spacing will determine bps. It is
possible to breakover more than once per AC 1/2 cycle. It depends on cap size,
xfmr current, and gap spacing. For 120 bps, I typically just enter an RSG
configuration that will give 120 bps (1800rpm, 4 electrodes, 1 gap). 

This entire RSG section you should take with a grain of salt. It's main purpose
is to identify the time between electrode alignment and compare that to the
time required to charge the tank cap based on the transformer supply. 

I have a lot more work to do on JavaTC, especially in the Gap section. One
thing I'd like to do is add a Static Gap section, but haven't thought of the
best way to do that yet (there are method difficulty's involved).

The recommended tap point is when the primary and secondary frequency's are
equal. Remember, this is only a program and the actual tuning will be off some.

Take care,
