Makes a great job together with my FT-817!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was sceptical of a switching power supply like this. But I was pleasantly surprised! I needed a light weight power supply for my Yaesu FT-817ND for my holiday trips by airplane. I ordered it directly at the German importer (Maas Elektronik). I tested it with my FT-817 in SSB mode by switching between power supply and internal battery pack (switching the PS on and off). As antenna I used a dipole with approximately 5 meters (15 ft) distance from the PS. On an empty band (30 m) I could recognize only a very low increase of the noise with the PS switched on compared to battery operation. It is not 100% perfect but a very good compromise between weight and performance.
