[AMRadio] HV Wire

The electric "fencer" comes in two flavors, high impedance and low 
impedance. I haven't a clue how they work as they just contain a potted 
black box and some controls and leads.  The functional differences are 
that one is faster and lower in voltage (roughly 1pps) and the other is 
higher in voltage and slower about 1.5 spp.

In either case, keep in mind that they are high speed (fast rise times) 
pulses and will put greater stress on the insulation. This is much 
different from switching on a power supply.

The other thing I am interested in, along the same lines is the fact 
that my main interest is getting 2kv AC from an outboard xformer, into 
the cabinet and on to the 866 plate caps.  So all the discussion about 
HVDC does not help me much.
