All the homebrew power supply decks have voltage and current meters,
then all the modulators and RF decks also have current meters.
If you run both rf and modulator off one power supply, you
get an indication on the power supply of the total current.

I use the radio shack meters (they used to sell) because they take
a small hole and used to cost $6.00.
