Hi Bob,

Interesting that they would be squeamish about higher voltages when a while back they ran an article suggesting running a 3-500 amp with the interlock defeated and a meter jammed in there to measure the filament voltage. They (quite rightly) took a bit of flak for that one though. 

Anyway, congrats on the award!
