      Numerous measurement problems developed early. It took quite a while
      to isolate the culprits. Measurement problems now seem isolated, but
      all readings initially threw me a loop. The night before we had
      explored the secondary power factor correction thesis and found that
      the high induction coil of ~2.4 H placed in parallel to the 456 hz
      based TC primary; yielded quite remarkable effects in detectable
      magnetism, by use of insertion of a ferromagnetic tuning fork.
      Normally when these coils are resonated at 60 hz, they exhibit a
      profound magnetism when the tuning fork is inserted, and the
      insertion of the tuning fork also alters the inductances of the air
      core transformer relationship between the coils. But in that case the
      question comes up; according to the laws of amp turn excitation going
      into saturation, shouldn't the excessive amp turn value in that
      situation produce an effect where any ferromagnetic tuning fork metal
      in the core appears instead to be non-magnetic, due to the fact that
      the surrounding amp turns should at least be close to that saturation
      value? Yet this does not occur in the 60 hz source frequency resonant
      explorations, instead the tuning fork appears very magnetic to the 60
      hz AC air core magnetic fields. Now in these first experiments
      conducted with that coil employed in a tank circuit whereby the
      resonant amperage rise appears to be a q factor of 25, @ 456 hz input
      from alternator to pole pig whereby a higher voltage from the pole
      pig's secondary can be inputed to that tank circuit; practically no
      magnetism is noticed with insertion of the tuning fork, which agrees
      with theories and postulations concerning the effects of creating
      superlative amp turns around a ferromagnetic conductor. However this
      observation is not yet complete, since the comparisons as to whether
      the high induction coil is placed into parallel resonance at 456 hz,
      or the more powerful series resonance to note magnetic effects on the
      insertion of the tuning fork into the air core are not yet determined.
      However also in contrast here the high impedance tank circuit is also
      empowered by a high voltage transformer from the lower voltage
      alternator source; so the comparisons of amp turn magnetic input from
      the same source might be comparable. In any case what happens here in
      this scenario where the coil is driven as a 456 hz source frequency
      tank circuit, is that the tuning fork appears almost unmagnetic to the
      surrounding 456 hz frequency established by the air core magnetic
      field of the coil, but it heats up very rapidly, exhibiting an
      induction heating effect at the comparably low frequency of 456 hz.
      Now in fact when the arc gaps are now placed together to produce
      primary arcing, The TC can be operated with this secondary power
      factor correction, but this is done with 1/4 the amount of power
      availability from the same alternator source, but this appears to be
      done at great efficiency from that alternator source. Somewhat
      puzzling in this regard however is the observation when the tuning
      fork is then inserted into the power factor correction coil, it
      appears slightly more magnetic, but the heating effects seem abscent
      which again is somewhat an opposite result that would be expected by
      high frequency induction heating effects.
      One young guest arrived and displayed his Marx coil. It took me
      awhile to show him my work. The evening ended several hours later
      after they left whereby the next step in exploring ferromagnetic
      resonant effects of using 50 nf at 456 hz with this size alternator
      was explored, by attaching this to the adjacent phase with a smaller
      step up transformer that could produce 4/5 the voltage of the pole pig
      transformer. Two independent arc gaps were made, but problems with the
      smaller brass knob arc gap on one side were quickly shown. Polarity
      problems between the phasings are apparent as it is difficult for the
      top terminals of each system to strike each other, when compared to
      the combined ground of each. The secondary power factor correction in
      that situation is not yet explored since good results were noted by
      simply using 50 nf caps on both high voltage secondaries. If two arc
      gaps can be fired from the same alternator simultaneously, this is at
      least good news, but the systems do not appear to be responding
      oppositely, as would be suspected. The problems will be looked into.
