Subject: questions about power supplies for different generations of TT
b) A TT ps protects the transceiver as it will shut down if the SWR gets too
For those with generations of TT transceivers, can you use an old ps for
more recent transceivers?
>>> Yes, definitely. You just have to rig up a way to switch the AC on/off
using the remote wires in the Molex (like) plug (for instance, solder a
bridge across these two wires inside the power supply).
And a new ps (962, 963) for older ones? (Paragon and Omnis)
>>> Use? Yes... but the old Omnis all relied on the power supply to shut
down with excessive current; the new 962/3 don't have this, so you need to
use an Airpax circuit breaker in the line.
How quiet is the switching ps?
>> I've been using them for 8 years and I cannot detect a difference whether
powering with one of these or with the older 961, or 962, or the old boat
anchor 35A Astron linear supply.
