I think the guard ring above the upper winding of the coil lost its
contact to this winding. So it was floating. Or, the contact was loose
so there was a small arc that started to burn that ring down so the
structure became more and more inhomogenious, from a E-field view. Well,
at least it worked very well since 2011!
I want to get even better results after the maintenance. There is some
room for improvements: The diameter / length ratio has never been
optimal on that coil. I want to check if it's possible to build a double
layer coil, at least a few of the upper windings... Effort but
