As I understand it, although no longer in existance, the largest Coil built
in recent history was Robert Golka's coil, which he buit at Wendover Utah,
and called "Project Tesla".

Another old friend of mine, Steve Harris, was Golkas assistant for part of
that Project, and he has shown me some of his photographs from that one (and
may well be the "unknown" photographer at the below link), as well as told
me some of the bizare stories concerning that coil. He also knows Bill
Wysock and did a lot of work on the Model 13, and was at Penrose when the
storm hit.

I could only find a few pictures of Golka's Coil at the following link, but
I am sure there may be more out there.

Anyone really interested in these coils can go back to Bill Wysocks site and
follow the "Tesla Coil Ring" link at the top left of his home page.
