Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I ordered the MFJ-4103 power supply which was specifically advertised for the FT-817 transceiver. It produced a lot of hash and interference in the radio, so I returned it. I should have read the reviews first. Then I ordered MFJ-1317 and found it to be a perfect fit - no hash or interference in my FT-817 and a slight bit smaller and lighter. It had the same output: 2.89 amps at 13.9 VDC, and was $15 less in price! I don't understand why MFJ created the MFJ-4103.

No RFI!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've got a couple of these that I use with different QRP transceivers. Small, light weight, and best of all, no RFI.

Great  Time owned: more than 12 months
Had this power supply for about 10 years; still working well. I use it to power my Yaesu FT-817 as a base station.

Perfect for FT-817 !  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was looking for a portable PSU to supply my FT-817 and VX-6 and I decided to purchase it after some bad experience with small fixed linear & switching units.

This is great because it supplies all the power needed for my radios and generates no electrical noise.

The temperature always remains acceptable ....

No hash  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was sold this as a 2nd hand 4103 but its in fact a 1317. Its very compact and does what its supposed to do. No hash discovered here.

Excelente complemento al Yaesu FT-817  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
La fuente de poder MFJ-1317, es pequena, liviana y funciona perfectamente con el transreceptor Yaesu FT-817. No genera ruido, ni interferencia y los 2.89 Amperios son suficientes para transmitir con una potencia de 5 vatios. Por su pequeno tamano (ancho 67 x alto 38 x fondo 111 m.m.) y ligero peso, es ideal para operaciones portatiles. Funciona con 110 y 220 VAC, lo que la hace ideal para su uso en viajes alrededor del mundo.
