||AC line voltage = 130?|
I was measuring DC voltages in my amp which appeared to be a bit high, so I set the DMM to AC and measured the power line.. 130VAC.
I know AC voltages are higher than they used to be, but this still seems too high.
What's a "normal" level?
P.S. This is in nuke-powered SE Pennsylvania.

Tell your power company to stop using those "super-extra-enriched" uranium pellets!!

Call he electric company and tell them you want a discount on your electric bill for all the unneeded current they are forcing you to use, plus the unecessary wear and tear on all your electric equipment.
I would imagine most all your appliances are rated at 117v/120v and you are pushing an extra 10-13vac RMS through them... and you have to pay for the extra electrcity for no damn reason and there is a power shortage all over the west coast!!
If you really have 130vac, call them and tell them to fix it... now.
