You asked a loaded question.Okay, figured out that all my signal transistors are pretty fried and causing problems. Switched to an NPN array and everything seems to be making sense.
By the way, can alpha (Ie/Ic) be greater than 1?
Alpha is Ic/Ie (not Ie/Ic) and it is less than one in the active region of operation (forward biased base emitter and reverse biased base collector).
If I remember correctly, alpha=B/(B+1) which is clearly less than one.
However, Ie/Ic is greater than one when operating in the active region.
