|I thought it time to add an update to my previous review. The Power Supply was idle for a couple years in storage. I put it back in service about a year ago, and it's never been turned off! It's powering three rigs and doesn't miss a beat. For its initial price, it's cost me a fraction of a cent per day! This was and continues to be a remarkable value.|

I've owned this power supply for 8 years. I've transported it across the country time and time again to set up portable ham operations from whatever city and/or state I happen to have business in. It's been bumped, jostled, pushed, shoved, upside down, right side up, sideways, rained on, suffered through extreme temperatures and humidity. From the deep South to the Canadian cold, I powered my faithful Yaesu FT-890AT & FT-8000R, along with a couple of smaller devices, and it's never missed a beat! I did mount a small fan with an on/off switch and indicator light across the huge heat sink on the back just to keep it a little cooler. I used to power the Ham shack at home with it too, but switched to a much heavier power supply to run HF, VHF, UHF, Packet radio with DX Cluster info (24 hours a day), various lighted meters etc. I thought it too small to run so many devices continuously.
I would recommend this product without hesitation.
