Actually 50A so you can run more then 1 thing at a time. The smart way to supply a shack when putting in new service.

I know it will power FIB's 5kw CB rig.

LOL at least that is smarter then running your generator in your garage. What a clown!

 If I understand what you wrote, the existing was 20 amps at 120 volts. The new service is 240 volts at 30 amps for amplifiers.. The 120 volts can be used for transceiver power supplies, watt meters other accessories. Very nice set up for use well into the future with head room and convenience. Not unreasonable power excess and one to be proud of. Congrats to you Gregory.
Will be listening for that great signal with the hex beam and the new Acom 1000. If you look at my 40 amp shack equipment photos on QRZ I am about maxed out on my 40 amp shack.
Still have not installed my 2 meter equipment.

A single high current switching PSU, and run all your gear from it.

When I upgraded to a 1200 watt amp I had an electrician run 240 VAC to a new outlet in the room. It cost $300.

I moved the shack into the room that housed our old electric water tank. I used the old 240V line from the water heater for my amp. The radio, computer and other stuff runs off a dedicated 120V 20A circuit.
