Well, its tuned to 500KHz, so without a tower, and being in my basement,
with its energy heating, ionizing, and ozone-izing the air, hopefully it
won't be heard. By FM chirp, I mean around 10 to 100KHz, not the 88-108MHZ band!

I thought so. Although its more to amuse my family, than assault. A recent
post on the TESLA mailing list commented that two car coils insulated in oil
with plastic tubing, and phased, produced 30" sparks when pulsed with a 600V
100uF (18 watt) impulse. Ouch!
