Fine power supply  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This power supply replaces my old, conventional power supply, which was to weak, to drive my IC756ProIII.

The unit was recommended to me by some HAMs.

First i was a little bit sceptical with the build in fan - but the fan rotates slowly and nearly inaudible;
even after 1 hour of CW qsos. My transceiver produces far more noise with its fans.

The unit looks well build, in a rugged sheet-steel case. The two meters are nicely illuminated. The
knob for voltage regulation has a tactile notch for 13.8V.

Only the main output banana jacks, rated at 45Amps, have a little bit too short holes.
It is not possible to fully insert the Hirschmann bunch pin plugs. The DC power supply
distribution panel MFJ-1118 has the same problem.

I ordered the unit by DIFONA in Offenbach/Germany. The unit was shipped at the same day and
arrived two days later - fine service!
