Re: Switching Power Supply

Phillip H Coker <pcoker36@...>

My other pastime is amateur radio and I have three switching power supply units for my radio equipment but one of them has now become surplus. I was concerned that a switching supply might not be up to the surge demands when the 1100 is slewing. But since you and Roland have good results with switching power supplies, it appears that this will not be a problem. Thanks for the response.

Why not buy a Mean Well 15V 7A switching power supply from eBay. I use one for my AP1200, and Roland said he's used them with good results.

Mine is shown in this photo <> with the plastic cover I made for it.
