[TenTec] Back-up rig opinion

Contrary to Roger's experience, I use a Astron SS-30M with no problems and 
no RF generated noise that I can detect or measure.  The supply is no more 
than 6" from the radio, the power cables are about 18" long being made of 
#12 AWG.   I did add a ground terminal to the back of the supply assuring 
that I had a good clean chassis connection and connected to the minus 
terminal inside the supply.  I then ran a separate ground between the supply 
ground and the radio ground.  As always, 3rd pin ground is in place.

Bob, K4TAX
