Power Supplies and Related Items For Sale:
MFJ 1118 Heavy Duty DC Power Distribution Strip:
The MFJ-1118 is a versatile, high-current deluxe
multiple DC power outlet. It lets you power two HF
and/or VHF transceivers and six or more accessories
from your transceiver's main 13 V DC power supply.
You get two pairs of super heavy duty 30 amp 5-way
binding posts for powering your transceivers. Each
pair is individually fused and RF bypassed, capable
of a total of 35 amps.
An LED indicates power "ON". Six pairs of heavy duty,
RF bypassed 5-way binding posts lets you power your
accessories. They handle a total of 15 amps and are
protected by a master fuse, have an ON/OFF power
switch and an LED power indicator.
You get 6 feet of super heavy eight gauge color-coded
cable with ring tongue terminals, plus a built-in
0 - 25 VDC monitor meter.
This one is like new. With paper work for only $60.
TenTec 25 amp switching power supply:
"Switcher / 25" 25 amp switching power supply
This is a 25 amp switching power supply in a case that
matches the early Omni series case, with the metal bezel
around it. It is in a case that is the same size as a 243
remote VFO. It has an ammeter on the front, along with
Switch, TenTec logo, and output bulb. The front panel
basically looks like a 280 power supply with a metal bezel,
but says "Switcher/25" on it. It is electrically very quiet,
and well shielded. It does not produce any electrical noise
that I could find.
Of course it works fine, and looks fine also. $140
10 amp, 13 V DC, Power Supply:
This is a basic 10 amp power supply made by
Stabylex Electronics Corp., and is model 10 SR.
It has automatic short circuit protection, and a
very large heat sink.
Obviously a supply with a 10 amp rating is ideal
for most 2 meter and dual band rigs.
This one works fine and looks great also. $35
Vintage Icom IC-3PA Power Supply / Speaker:
The Icom IC-3 PA was originally designed to be used
with Icom's 10 watt 2 meter rigs, such as the IC-22,
IC-230, IC-22 S, etc. It produces 13 V DC at 3 amps,
and shuts down at 4.5 amps.
In addition to being a power supply, it also has a front
facing speaker in the enclosure. It is designed so that
the 2 meter rig sets on top of the power supply. It has
four lights for power, normal, warning, and over current.
This particular unit is in extremely nice condition.
The normal and power lights work. I don't know about
"warning" and "Over current", but I expect that they
do. I do not find any scratches on it.
With the paper work for $40.
Micronta 22-120 A Regulated power supply:
This supply is rated at 2.5 amps at 13 V DC. It is
well regulated. It has a switch and LED power light
on the front, with a circuit breaker and output terminals
on the back. The case (left and right side and top) is
basically all a heat sink, so it should cool the
This one works fine and looks like new. No scratches. $30
Homebrew Power Supply:
This power supply is in a very nice gray and black enclosure
with binding posts for the output on the front, along with
a pilot bulb and power switch. The back panel has a fuse
and the regulator. It looks to be good for 13 V DC at
about 1.5 amps.
It works fine and looks really great. No scratches or
defects on the cabinet. $15
Bench Type Power Supply:
This power supply is completely adjustable
with a multiturn pot, up to about 20 Volts DC.
It appears to be good for about 3/4 of an amp.
The analog meter reads 0 to 15 Volts DC or
0 to 30 V, switch selected.
It is housed in a very nice eggshell and wood
grain cabinet. Of course it works fine. $20
"Wall Wart" Power Supplies:
All of these are "regular" wall warts - not the new
switching type that create all sort of noise in your
receiver. Use one of these, and leave the noise behind.
12 V DC at 625 ma
Many uses for the 12 volt variety! $14
Heathkit "Converter / Charger"
9 Volts DC at 100 ma.
No Heath number on this, and I don't know what it was used
on originally. It can be used either as a 9 Volt DC "power
pack" or as a charger. It has a 2.5 mm male plug on it, with
the tip positive, so it can be used on many devices. $10
9 Volt DC at 500 ma
This one was used on a MFJ 422 keyer, but will also power
other items needing 9 V DC at low current. It has a
2.5 mm male plug on it, tip positive. $12
Kepco Variable Bench Power Supply:
This is an ideal bench power supply! It is a Kepco Model ABC
40-0.5, which means that it will produce from zero up to 40 V
DC at up to 1/2 amp. Great for the bench.
The voltage is adjustable with a 10 turn pot from close to zero,
up to about 40 volts. There is a fairly large analog meter that
reads the voltage. There is also current limiting built in that
is adjustable from about 100 ma to up to about 700 ma. The same
meter that reads voltage can be switched to read current, or
short circuit current (the point that the current limit is set).
In addition, there are connections on the back to allow remote
sensing and remote programming. This is a quality regulated
This particular unit works 100%, and looks extremely nice.
Large 150 Volt AC Weston Analog Meter:
Weston Model 1934, 150 Volt AC meter
This meter is a nice large 3.5 inch modern meter.
The AC scale is expanded, so that 120 volts is
easier to read. This meter is new, never used,
still in its original box, complete with hardware.
Weston Model 1931, 150 Volt DC Meter
This meter is similar to the one above, except
it is for DC instead of AC.
It is also new, in its original box, with hardware.
Surge Station and Noise Filter:
This unit is still in its Radio Shack (#61-2327) box, never
used. It says it is for a notebook computer, but it can be
used with anything. It has connections for a computer network
(LAN, RJ-45 connector), the AC power, and for phone lines
(RJ-11 connector), and provides noise filtering and surge
suppression on each. It even includes $25,000 insurance
against surges. Maximum power rating is 1875 Watts, or 15
amps. Noise filtering is listed at 40 db.
This unit is new, in its original box, with its original
paper work. $15
I also have many other accessories available such as many
different types of microphones, HTs, HF, VHF and UHF rigs, HF
and VHF/UHF antennas, etc.
Just too many to list here. Please e-mail your requests.
Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
