I posted this message on the Amps Site but got no answers.  I assume there 
must be several 
contesters out there using the 77DX.  Thanks for any info.
I recently got an Alpha 77DX that was factory refurbished,
and would like to know the working parameters that other
users are observing.  The 77DX has the hypersil 
4.4kV transformer (not a PeterDahl).  I was wondering
 what you see as key-up voltage, key-down voltage 
at full power, how much drive you use, 
and grid current on the meter 
(Yes, I know it reads 2 or 2.5 times real current). 
 I get about 4000 V down to 3300V with 80 watts of
 drive and about 200 ma on the meter. 
 Thanks for any advice.  73  Saul  K2XA
