    swiped from link below:

    Those that can produce a continuous spark output (that is, a flame
    like plasma that exists at 100% duty cycle) and those that make what
    appear to be a continuous spark, but are rather producing sparks at
    several hundred times per second with a rest between each spark
    event. The first (continuous) type of SSTC lends itself to audio
    modulation. Normally the output spark is a silent plasma flame. By
    modulating the amount of power put into the plasma flame, we can
    modulate the physical volume of the plasma. Modulating the size of
    the plasma will cause the expansion/relaxation of air surrounding the
    plasma, thus producing sound waves. These have actually been around
    for decades using vacuum tube drive. See this link for more details:

    There used to be a loudspeaker that used a modulated flame, it was
    called the 'Ionic', IIRC.

    Ionophone IIRC.

  9. They made terrible headphones, though. ;-)

    Service to my country? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD214 to
    prove it.

    ESLs do, though ;-)

    The potentials are a little saner, but still interesting enough to be fun.
