(1) Alinco has a full page ad for their new 30 amp switching power supply,
DM-330MV. Really neat looking package with a volt/amp meter, 10 amp "cigar"
jack and two sets of 5 amp snap terminals on the front panel, and binding
posts on the back. Another feature that sounds good is a Noise Offset
Circuit adjustment that apparently changes the frequency of any pulse noise
that may be present from the supply.
(2) MFJ has a new Contest Voice Keyer, MFJ-434, new Boom Mic Headphones,
MFJ-396, and a new 25 amp MightyLite switching power supply, MFJ-4125 (not as
neat looking as the Alinco).
(3) AI6V/P49V has an ad requesting support of the WRTC 2000.
(4) M2 Antenna Systems has a new 20 ft. portable "Fast Mast".
