ICOM PS-125 Switching Power Supply No Output!!

Well, I was using this PS-125 power supply the night before last, and it was working properly. I went to use it tonight, and there was no DC output. The proper ac voltage is going into the plug-in at the back, (good cord). The L.E.D. on the front of the supply won't even light. The only thing that I...

And like I originally stated, those types of radios don't belong on QTH.com. Gone full circle.

K4ICL: As far as the FCC rules and regulations, I know them quite well. I never once said that it was illegal to own one of these radios or for that matter use them. I just mainly stated that these radios are not produced for the purpose's of being operated on the ham bands. They are produced to be ...

Another one exposed. I hope that you do buy that radio, as it would take it off of this ham radio site. It may have already been taken off of this site. CB's have their place but not the ones that are made disguised as 10m radios but are easily converted to the cb band. Most people know what I am ta...

To N6ATF: If you read my post, I was commenting on a Galaxy 88 radio that was for sale on QTH. Everyone knows that these are not intended for 10M, and are easily converted to the 11 meter band. A legit ham radio does not come with echo's, roger beeps, etc. Somehow you seem to be offended by this, an...

I know the rules, etc. I thought the ad was obvious that I was talking about chopshop/truckstop type amps. The Dave Mades, Palomars, etc. Everyone knows the kind I am talking about. There haven't been any of these 10/11 amps that that can pass the input to output guidelines set forth by the FCC. Aga...

Dumping illegal 10 Meter amps on QTH?

Scanning the, " for sale", ads today, we have, "10 meter amps" up for sale. There isn't a legal 10M only amp. Never has been. Do these belong? You be the judge: Here is how they are advertised: "Also have 3 10-meter mobile amplifiers. Starfire 400- Communicator 800- Starfire 1200. All amps have 3 st...

If I do estimate the cost of shipping, I give them a price... if it is less than quoted, I send the difference back. If it is more, I cover that cost. Also, when I ship a package, I don't skimp on the tape, or packaging material. I have found that using shredded paper is perfect for shipping. It fil...

I agree with VE3TMT. Why would anyone buy from someone who sends in an ad like that? That is just asking for problems.

Shipping charges??

I am just curious as to what others have run into as far as what other hams charge for shipping? I am finding more and more people trying to make money on the shipping charges. And what is with the handling charge? I am not talking about professionals, just plain hams selling their ham items. When I...

Thankyou for your post. I did price out a new power module, and it is almost not worth it. I will see if I can fix the problem myself, ie, cold solder joints, etc.

Question on IC-2100H....Very little, or no output....

Hello, I am working on a Icom 2m mobile, the IC-2100H. I guess there was a common problem with these radio's losing the output power. This particular radio puts out only millawatts on any power setting. I have done the APC, (Auto Pwr Control), ie, new transistor, (Q19), with heatsink mod. I still do...

This article was not intended to get into a debate of ham vs cb. Let's not hijack this article into an argument. I was just commenting on some items seen on here recently. I was not dissing cber's or hams, so don't make anything more out of it than was intended. 73 Pat N8QBY
