Hello Hams,

Inspired by N0AX's Jan 2013 QST article, I built a simple Anderson PowerPole polarity checker and posted an article on my website.  Handy little device.  Happy New Year!

Red right, tab top, all you need to do then is put the right wires in the right holes.

It is good practice to use red for positive and black for ground. However, Murphy is a nasty guy who often exchanges those colors  Grin

TANAKASAN: Very good!  I always have to double check. 

I came up with one some time ago when trying to remember the difference between HDL and LDL cholesterol.  I found it easier to remember, HDL is Healthy DL and LDL is Lethal DL.
