          Appeal No. 1998-1288                                                        
          Application No. 08/502,817                                                  

          Zansky and Cox references which would have suggested to the                 
          artisan that the series combination of the inductor and the                 
          capacitor of Zansky should be naturally resonant at a                       
          frequency lower than the fundamental frequency of the                       
          alternating voltage.  Cates and Warren do not overcome this                 
          deficiency in the basic combination of references.  Therefore,              
          we also do not sustain the examiner’s rejection of claims 3-6               
          based on the collective teachings of Zansky, Cox, Cates and
