1. [Amps] Neutral vs Ground Connection for 220 VAC (score: 1)
Author: w9ac@arrl.net (Paul Christensen)

Mike, An excellent question and its one I wrestled with painfully when connecting my Alpha 77Dx to service in my new home.... Most amateur amplifiers do not require a neutral when configured for 240V

After 20 years of service, I experienced my first problem with my Alpha 77Dx amplifier. I noted that the input VSWR into the amp was very high, zero plate current, and only 40mA of grid current regar

As I've been sorting through my 8877 filamant issue, I have noted that some GG 8877 designs tie the filamant and cathode together while other designs do not. The designs that keep the cathode isolate

Of course, Alpha's main competitor in this performance and price class is the ACOM 2000A. I have owned two ACOMs and two 87As. I now run only the older battleship Alphas. Anyway... Both the 87A and A

a Recall that the 2000A is a true auto-tune amp and it performs this function remarkably well...even better than the Alpha 87A in my opinion. If the amp is misadjusted during tune-up, it's the amp's

Actually, the only part not still available and in production on the 70V is the power tube (although not a trivial matter!). However, if you are fortunate to find a 70V with a good tube and a good s
