Great amp!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is my first amp but I have used the Alpha 89 & 91B before. It works great and is very forgiving. 1kw out with no issues.

BUILT TO LAST !!!!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
1kw all day long with 40w drive on 20 and 40m. Cooling system is by far the best I've seen. I've had a few amps in the past and this oldie but goodie tops them all. Too bad the tubes are expensive but if you don't abuse this amp, tubes will last a very long time.
If you find one for around $1200.00 SNAG IT !!!

Two 8874 Amplifier  Time owned: more than 12 months
I am the third owner of this amp, and it is a great one! I like its looks and performance, as it has often outperformed other amps with more power. I chase dx often with it but most of the time, I ragchew with my other friends on 3.810. I have convinced my other buddies to also get Alpha amps, as they are built like the proverbial tank. I have had my fair share of forgetting to switch antennas, not changing the bandswitch, and other "pilot errors", but this amp is very forgiving and keeps on performing. I would trade or sell it, as it has found it's home in my shack. Don't waste your time, get an Alpha. Just simply the best amplifier there is, bar none

Great 2 Tube Workhorse  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have owned this amplifier for 10 years and the most it has required is a set of new electrolytic capacitors in the high voltage (one failed as an open circuit). Even with 2 tubes it is a power house and very stable under all load conditions!
