The Astron SS-10 is a compact switching power supply that provides an output of 13.8 volts DC. It will provide 7 Amps of continious current or 10 Amps ICS. The output is very clean and free of unwanted RF noise. Voltage regulation is absolutely outstanding! The AC power cord (INCLUDED) which plugs into the back of the supply is the C13/C14 style similar to those used on desktop computers. Red and black output terminals utilize 8-32 screws to clamp down on wires up to number 12 gauge. This unit is perfectly suited for use as a QRP or VHF/UHF radio power supply in any Ham Shack.

This product was purchsed last week, but is already in the mail,sending back to TenTec. The purpose for the supply was for the TenTec 1340 40m QRP rig that I just assembled. I was using a TenTec 940 25amp power supply with success, but wanted another supply for a different location. The Astron SS-10 produces an enormous amount of rf on the QRP rig. There was so much static coming from the Astron that I couldn't hear anything on the 1340 QRP rig. Side by side, the TenTec 940 doesn't do this at all.
