Nicolas Chauvin in Switzerland has re-built and re-built the Steel and Glass cells improving with each iteration.
Over the past several weeks, he has been calibrating them live on HugNet and preparing them for a live run.
This week he received new-generation Celani wires as will be discussed at ICCF19 and installed them. Thanks once again to Francesco for his generosity.
Loading has gone well, Nicolas says
"For the loading phase, it is 180 minutes at 18W input on each wire (36W total, internal temp ~ 285°C), then a relax period of 60 minutes at 3W to cool the wires down (6W total, cooling down to ~ 100°C).
This cycle of 180/60 min goes on for 24 hours (6 cycles)."
He reports around 20% change in resistance.
