I should have some time this weekend to try this with a 10kv supply and spark gaps, and maybe 4kv with an avalanche stack.

My 10kv setup is same as above but with a full bridge.  I can also use a delay line for the pulse width.

TK is using a one conductor wire for the ground connection.   At least that's what the videos show and what his patent illustrates.   So it's not a coax, which has two conductors.

Well, after a long time thinking about it I'm sure TK device is TPU without closed path or rather with path ended to ground. Still I have to build a working model to prove my concept, then I will tell more...  ;)

TK said he had to have coax for it to work, yet you can't find it in the clear box video (this is the latest video).

Even if TK is a fraud, I think the coax will work.  I only have 10 feet of suitable coax, scrounging my boxes for a longer piece.

It's turtles all the way down
TK may have used coax for the braided outer shield, which supposedly has superior HF groundiing than ordinary stranded wire.
