You need 240V service. If you don't have it or can't get it cancel the order. The 9500 was never designed to run from 120V.
Make sure all of your coax is in good shape.? No kinks or sharp bends? Get rid of the RG-8X and get some RG-213 class coax.
Been using cheap PL-259's? They may stand up but might not.
Do you have to run a tuner on any/all bands? Is it rated for at least full legal power?
Will your antenna handle 1500W? When is the last time you inspected the traps on that tribander?
Good station ground?
You transceiver manual can tell you more about what's neccesary to run an amp than the amp manual.
At a minimum you need coax between TRX output connector and amp input, and a keying line between the TRX key out jack and the amp key in jack.
You can by prefab RCA cables for the control lines from Radio Shack.
Youcan also buy prefab coax jumpers for TRX to amp but where's the fun in that?
