There is a reason why many hams call MFJ "Mighty Fine Junk". Their stuff is marketed at a price point that is attractive but something has to suffer for it. With MFJ it's usually quality control.how are mfj's stuff? Their prices seem good. Ill also check out astron too
I was in the same boat looking for a power supply & came across the Mean Well S-250-12's on Ebay. The company seemed reputable and the price to feature comparison blows away an Astron. 18Amp power supply for $60.00 shipped with 3 + & - rear connectors could not be beat. Plus a built in fan. I use it to power my Kenwood V71A on Echo & connect a 4" fan to blow on the rear of the radio with 1 + & - free for expansion or another radio. The Astrons has 1 + & - connection creating a jumbled mess attaching multiple connections on 1 prong.i should be getting a mobile rig soon to use as a base. ill need a power supply. i have no idea the first thing to look for in a power supply.
i need it to power an icom IC-208H.
