Can I connect both my 2 meter and my HF radios both to the same power posts on the rear of my power supply? Obviously, I would only have one radio on at a time.
Have Andersons on the front of the PS, but hate having wires run out of the front of my shack setup.

Yes, of course you may. Just don't exceed the amperage of the supply.

You can receive on one and transmit on the other, or receive on both... but you probably don't want to transmit on both at the same time!

I have my Astron power supply connected to a metered power distribution panel.  The power posts on that panel is a rat's nest of wire going to most of the 13.8V stuff on my desk.

I have no problem....... but I do monitor the current drawn and the voltage supplied.  I am careful not to exceed the current and not have an excessive  voltage sag.
