Oh oh! That horrid burning plastic smell is emanating from my
trusty (or so I thought) Model 255. Happened first on 15 meters,
where it takes all it can give to drive a 100 W to my quad, but
is present still even when operating at 15 A after cooling off

Before I pop the top off, thought I'd ask those in the know what
to look for and what the chances are of repairing it. Also, if I
need to find a new PS, what's a good match with my Omni-C
(cable-wise)? Though, I sure like the built-in speaker on the 255
I know I can't count on finding one in a timely manner.
