      The left quadrant shows a TC lightning display which for puposes here
      on this mailng list becomes an investigation into the tesla primary
      arc gaps used for operation with tesla coils.

      the INDEX there shows
      TANK.GIF </howto/TANK.GIF>
      as L C loops with primary arc shunted to HV source, the prefered
      method employed with tesla coils.

      TANK1.GIF </howto/TANK1.GIF>
      shows the rejected circuit, not recomended by tesla at the very
      beginning of primary arc gap notes in the Colorado Spring Notes, of
      1899 research, and commentators following that fact.

      The BINARY RESONANT, OR MARX TANK ADAPTATION of that schematic is to
      add a symmetrical image to that schematic where the arc enables
      function for two LC oscillations 180 out of phase instead of one, and
      the source voltage connection of one side moved to the actual new
      source connections of the circuit. In this way one arc gap can be
      shared by two LC oscilllations of components, using 4 of them instead
      of the customary two.

      TANK2.GIF </howto/TANK2.GIF>
      shows the same idea as the first schematic where only one capacity
      is used in the loop instead of two, and the arc is parallel, or
      shunted to the voltage source.

      In the MARX TANK scenario charging to each capacity directly
      connected to each HV source is made 180 out of phase, where arcing
      at gap developing between chargings releases twice the voltage, hence
      the use of 4 LC quantites, instead of two as used in conventional
      tesla primaries.


      Confusion is possible in that the MARX BANK method is already known
      as a switching method to increase voltage, where switch mechanisms
      employed to charge capacities first in parallel, then release of
      voltage in series is employed by use of many of these C values, and
      switched actions to build up a high voltage release across a air gap.

      The MARX TANK OSCILLATION is then merely using the same idea only
      with opposites, where each C to be charged oppositely before release
      gets the L in series to negotiate the resonant frequency that will be
      made.

      What will then be made is by the inventors employing this technique
      as an arc gap made for HF oscillations, where it seems certain that
      the vast variety of practicioners of teslas art have neglected this
      possibility. So it is good to break into the trade by stealth of
      observance, where recognizance of the truth is made by the observance
      of the things that occur by de ja vu, where the obvious is overlooked
      by conventional thinkings.
