solid state mixing with tubes.. I tried to fire up an old tube linear for 
test with an Alinco DX-70.. The Johnson Viking I usually use for this was 
not within reach and the DX-70 was.

Unfortunately, there was a DC connection between the GG amp cathodes and 
the RF input jack. Somehow this fried the Alinco and blew the fuse on the 
linear.. I think when I did the forensics on this one that when the Alinco 
un-keyd, the amp was still keyed and 300VDC appeared momentarily on the RF 
input jack -still not sure why, but it did.
