I traveled with perfectly working radio and power supply from Jacksonville Florida to Monrovia, Liberia via Paris, France. The items were checked in since they were too heavy to be carried onto the plane. I got home and the power supply comes on without the fan turning but not giving out any current to power up the rig and I connected to rig to another power supply and it is not coming on either.  Can someone suggest what to do?  I am one unhappy DX station.

Broken glass fuse?

YIP:  Sounds to me that your problem might be the supplied voltage and or any adapters you might be using in Liberia.  Please tell me you didn't power up your 120VAC power supply with 220VAC!

If so are you using the correct plug adapter?  My experience with some cheap plug adapters have been unfavorable.  They were junk.  Make sure yours are OK.

More information is needed OM.

My thoughts too.

If this is the case, then chalk it up to operator fail.

Liberia uses type A and B electrical plugs with a voltage of 120 V at 60 Hz.
