Re: 8877 Help pse

Mal, this one is a HB on 6m.  I had a weekend Flash-Bang event. I blew the HV fuse (small 10 ohm resistor in series in the HV line). Now after repair of that the grid draws abt 10 ma. without any drive.  With drive, slowly easing up to 50 watts I still get my 1500 watts out but the grid current is way high, near 100 ma.  Some have suggested a mechanical grid short?  Any ideas or advice?

Is there anyone out there that has 8877 amplifier experience that would be willing to answer some technical questions via email? Tnx for the consideration. The amplifier IS driving the 8877 just so I’m not off topic.........
