One way to do it is to share the transformer and build the second
rectifier in your 144 amp. That way you are just sharing the transformer
and can run both at the same time.
If you want to share the B+ to feed both amps you have to be careful
the metering and the B-. You would probably want to eliminate the B-
just use ground as the reference. Contact Frank W3LPL.
You probably do not want to mess around with the inners of the 2500!
