Thanks for the reply.
I haven't opened mine up yet to look inside.
I'm assuming you just connected a switch between the positive and negative wires leading to those two pins on the Molex connector? Some how I'm thinking it wasn't as easy as that. But I'm assuming the open circuit occurs at the Molex connector and therefore bridging those two pins with a switch will close the circuit.
Do you happen to remember the current rating for the switch you used?
I just saw on another website that you should bridge across Pins 3 and 6. Well, not bridge and keep live current flowing all the time, but use a switch across the two. Is that what you did?
HI, yes this sounds the same as what you're talking about. All you have to do is open the PS and clip the 2 wires used for the radio switch (the ones going to pins 5 & 6) inside towards the back, where they go to the cord (leave enough to reconnect again if needed) splice if necessary and connect to toggle switch. I used a heavy duty toggle switch, because I had one, but the switch wires were pretty small gauge as I recall and the switch I used was overkill. All you are doing is providing a means to short the 2 wires together, thus turning on the PS. The PS-55 will now be useable with many 100w class rigs. Hope this helps.
