Thanks Bryan,

I know what it's like with the battery usage on the 43P, that's why I'd like
to modify mine so I can use it with a 12v psu. I'm not sure there's much I
can gain by changing to a device from LNA Technologies, even if you could
get it... (check their web site, amateur stuff is bottom of a growing list
of services)

All I'm looking for is info on how to use my 43p, with a small 12v psu, I
know it can be done, but all my searching on the net hasn't turned up
anything yet.

I realise that a bird 34 meter isn't an amplifier... but it connects to
it... :)

Any and all info very much appreciated...

Hi Andy,
Bird Electronic Corp:
might have the info you seek.  However, I've read that
their PEP adapters are current hogs -- they flatten
the two 9V batteries (no external power provision) in
around 24 hours use.
On the other hand, LNA Technologies
( produces units that
use a single battery and are will operate much longer.
 They have versions to fit Bird wattmeters, and they
produce generic units.
