(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".

Only 7 days til the CQ WWDX SSB Contest!!!
