Yep! They make direct replacements for both Kilovac and Jennings, both 
of which have been used by Ten Tec in their power amps. I've taken 
advantage of it to replace worn out relays in my Ten Tec power amps. 
(QSK in a contest puts a lot of cycles on that relay). Gigavac has been 
great to deal with.

At a hamfest a year or so ago, I noted that the Alpha amp that was open 
on display used a Gigavac relay, and I asked an engineer in the booth 
about it. They replied that they were quite happy with them and had had 
great reliability.
