I didn't think we discussed monopoles in private, just DST's (which I'm
leery to test, due to the X-rays. Maybe if I did it from a distance I
would be safe?

I'll send my design diagrams to everyone on SSD as soon as I can. I
assure you, I'll send them at latest, by tommorow.

I thought it was self-answerable: I placed the compass near the device,
and the needle reversed direction, with the north end pointing towards
the device. If I placed the compass on the other side, it reversed
again, the same way. I tried with angles, circling the device, on
top,underneath, and nowhere did the south end stay towards the device.
Maybe even if its not a monopole, it might still have a useful purpose.

Afraid I don't understand what you mean...

Good points. I'll try to abide by them from now on.
