Default Fluke 771 Clamp Meter Question?

I am considering the Fluke 771 Milliamp Clamp Meter to measure the plate current of tubes. It seems like the meter would be very convenient considering you don't have to open the circuit. I need to be able to measure in milliamp range. I currently own a Fluke 87V.

The problem is: this meter only measures up to 100 mA.
I would like to get a meter that can measure mA and up to 5A.

Do you guys know of any other meter that can do this or any other solution.

I think the clamp only reads alternating current which won't help you read plate current of tubes.

Eh... Is this a redundant repetition of this thread?
