Alpha 78 Arrives from AZ

Alpha 78 arrived yesterday from AZ. 1st inspection looks like it survived the UPS trip ok. According to K5VT this amp has made several trips to Africa with the Voodudes "That amp did some time in VP5 before I got it and then we had it in XT2 for 2 contests and TZ got two contests. I love it when the gear has a bit of a 'story to it'  http://www.voodoocontestgroup.com/.  It looks a bit rough but if it runs ok it will be a useful addition to the station here.

This thing is a bit of a monster.  The transformer came in a seperate box.  The red item next to it is an auto tire gauge for size.
