I use my TT 963 power supply for my 2 m rig, and various accessories, 
such as the meters on the dummy load, meter on the transmatch, and Model 
715  speech processor, etc.   I use a big linear for the transceiver. 
My computer fans are nearly silent (and are the very quiet type Jerry 

The only fan noise in my shack comes from my TenTec Centurion amplifier 
that I sometimes run.   I figure those fans have specified volumes and I 
would probably kill it by replacing them with quiet fans that did not 
move enough air.   That is the top-most item on my wish list - quiet, 
but effective fans on the linear amp.    I would spend real money to be 
able to replace them safely and without risking damage to the unit from 

Happy trails to ya.   =============== K8JHR ======================
