Re: [TCML] Fram the new guy.

Assuming that you are referring to series-connected multi-segment static
gaps - The ability to quench quickly - cease spark gap conduction after the
"bang" energy has transferred from the primary tank circuit to the secondary
tank circuit - is better with multi-segment spark gaps.  If the energy
transfers back and forth pri/sec multiple times, there are losses in the
spark gap that increase with each transfer.  However, spark gap losses are
also greater in multi-segment gaps, so it's an unresolved debate as to which
type of gap - single or multi - results in better performance.

  How does it benefit the TC to have multiple spark-gaps?
