Re: [TCML] picture tube capacitor?

Considering that the phosphors are purposefully situated between the
"plates", I'm guessing that the resulting capacitor would put on a
spectacular show when excited with HV RF!  In any other TC context we'd
call that lossy, but maybe here the show would be on the screen rather than
from the top load.
