Darrell, do you still have the powersupply for the AF-68?  I have 
one here, that I got from Larry/CFJ a couple of years ago, and 
I've been wanting to put that thing mobile for so long, that I'm 
about ready to build an AC-input power supply, and plug it into 
my 600w DC-AC inverter.


73 = Best Regards,
