In working on my current 6M amp project, I decided to rebuild my HV power
supply, and really do it right.
I wanted to make up boards both for a generic FW rectifier assembly (each
leg comprised of up to 12 6A10s) and for the stack of 15 capacitors (470
MFD 450V) for a yield of 31 MFD @ 7200V.
I contacted Fred at Far Circuits ( _http://www.farcircuits.net/_
(http://www.farcircuits.net/) ), and worked with him on the layout. He was
incredibly helpful and cooperative, and created 2 sets of boards for me for a
reasonable cost. I'm very happy with the boards and their performance.
Very often, we hear complaints about one supplier or another; I wanted to
pass along a "success story" about one of the few remaining vendors who
cater to the ham radio builder. The experience was both a learning experience
for me, and an absolute joy.
Hope to see all of you on the Magic Band once the project is finished!
