Many thanks to W7HPW, K5GW, K6KWQ, K5PC, AF5B, and WB4BRA- your advice was
right on, and I have the transformer working. 230 VAC between the 60 Hz and
V primary taps yields 1160 VAC out from the 60 Hz and 1160 V secondary taps.
Incidently, using the 50 Hz secondary tap instead yields about 1350 VAC.
The Amps group is great!
73 and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year,
