Pulse Rockets: Has Anyone Ever Tryed Them?

possibly could be acheived by using a large layer of bp for timing, then a (VERY) small layer of flash (80-20 Mg-Kno3 Comp) to give it a small push, every 0.5~1.0 second. I have not actually tried this, and wanted some opinions first, so thought it would be wise to post it here first. Good luck, and if anyone dares to try the metho, please do email or pm me with the results.

Potassium Nitrate :- 80
Charcoal fine :- 7
Charcoal 5x :- 8
Charcoal 36 :- 35
Charcoal 20 :- 8
Which is a slightly odd use of charcoal, and I'm not entirly sure what the first number means, probably mesh size.

I am not sure If these ideas would work but I have heard of a lot of bp rocket motors having a high charcoal content to slow the burn rate and thought that if you had small layers of normal 75-15-10 bp in the high charcoal stuf it would be acceptably safe to ram and might posibly work. another idea would be to have layers of granulated bp in the compressed meal powder so these areas would be sponge-like and burn very quickly, like the lift charge in a roman candle. I have not tried these out yet but tell me If I it might work.
