I am thinking on a design that lets the owner place the power supply on the floor v/s incorporating it into the amp. I like it that way and I ass...

I agree on the tuner.... Good thinking on the dual speed fan , however I have the heak sink designed already with no need for the jet fan. The problem is that most manufacturers UNDER-RATE for size.

Brand New Desktop 600 watt Solid State Amplifier

I have rebuilt some 450 Yaesu FL-7000 amplifiers and with so many new solid state "complex" amplifiers on the market, I am in the process of designing a brand new simplified desktop 600 watt amplifier similar in style to the FL-7000 and basic features like band tracking, LEDS, Analog Meters and simp...

Tips for the trade , add yours!

Here is one. You know those plastic feet on the bottom of your ham radio equipment? Well the rubber ring (scratch protectors) falls off of them over time and this leads to scratches on your radio bench. I found the exact size and perfect replacement. Go to your local hardware store and get some "Gar...
