A technique for precise determination of β- endpoints with an intrinsic germanium detector has been developed and checked with 27Si and 58Cu sources; QEC values of 5272 ± 26, 8063 ± 42 keV have been obtained for mass-separated samples of 77Rb, 75Rb and 77Kt, respectively. Mass surface systematics in this region have been examined and found to be consistent.
