"Your problem is the 116v...."

Exactly.

And the softness or drop in the voltage from the 120v - 125v ac of the
transformer secondary to 116v is mostly due to the resistance in the
overhead steel Neutral line between the power pole and your house. Too much
ohmage.

The steel cable is pretty strong and supports the two weighty soft copper
wires over the span from the pole to the roof jack on the house.
Electrically, the steel cable is more like a rubber band.

If the angle is ), Cos ) =1. Arc Cos 1 = ) - the classic Underwood
Syndrome.

Cheers, Mabuhay, Prost, bitte reichen Sie die Kaffeekanne -RayO, aka Opa!

Got Grinder?
