Re: [TCML] Do over capacitance lead to poor resonance?

Hello Chester,

The cap size of 22nF should be fine. I suspect your problem is elsewhere
in your system. There are many possibilities beyond tuning, but there is
not enough information presented to predict anything (except to guess
wildly). Is there any way you can should a photo of your coil? A wiring
diagram and geometry of pri, sec, and top load would be helpful. A
description of your spark gap is also useful here. Photo's of course
should be uploaded somewhere on the internet and then just provide the
link in your TCML email.
