Hello Everyone,

I am a new member here. Awhile back I was able to pick up a Yaesu FT-840. I purchased it w/out a power source (it did come with an external mic) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on power sources for someone on a very limited budget. I don't currently have an antenna for it but I figured I could build one on my own. I would be using this as my first HF Rig and just want something that I can use to make a few contacts and familiarize myself with how everything works. I currently have an HT (Yaesu VX-8DR) that I take hiking and to listen in on nets. So would love to get more involved.

Thanks and 73,

Kurt K9OAK

Hi Kurt,

Welcome! Glad you are here and congrats on the pickup of the FT-840. Great starter HF radio. For a power supply, I would recommend the Alinco DM330MVT. Excellent 30amp supply at HRO for about $165. Another great power supply model are Astron. You can typically find those in the same price range.

Also, your VX-8DR is a great little handheld. Congrats on that and is perfect for hiking or any portable use. Be sure to check in tonite (Tuesday) on 448.675, minus offset, 100Hz tone for our analog net.

73,
Dan

Welome Kurt!

If $$ are tight, consider Mean Well switching power supplies. You can get a 12V 30A one off Amazon for about $40. They're extremely well built - some of the cleanest output I've ever seen from a power supply on the scope. No detectable RF noise either. I use them all over my shop for ham and non-ham things. Beware of Chinese knock-offs though.

@n2srk Dan,

Thanks so much for the suggestions and for the warm greetings. I did try to check into the net last night but I wasn't able to be heard so I think there was too much RF interference from my location indoors. Of course, the fact that I am running on just my HT that I mentioned and an attached Diamond SRH77CA antenna might (in conjunction with the repeater being 35+ miles away) have something to do with it. So next week I might have to bundle up and go outside to check-in.

Thanks again,

840

Thanks Jeff.

I will check out all of the suggestions I have received so far and will keep the club updated with my station progress.

Hello & welcome to the PRA Kurt. I have a lightly used JetStream power supply that would fit nicely with your HF rig. You can check it out in the 'For Sale' forum.

FOR SALE : FC 10 yaesu automatic tuner.

#1022

FYI

From our Member Rich if interested contact him I had this tuner worked great I added more Links and Info I had to reduce the size of the Pictures

The Yaesu FC-10 Tuner is designed for the Yaesu FT-840. It operates in all nine HF amateur bands and features 31 frequency memories. The FC-10 provides a compact, easy-to-install unit that is styled to match the appearance of the FT-840 and will match a wide variety of antennas to within a 1.5:1 SWR on any amateur band frequency in typically less than 30 seconds. You can use the tuner switch on the transceiver for one-touch recall of tuner frequency memories that have already been stored. SWR matching occurs in under one second for memory recall. Transmitter power required for matching can be as little as 10 watts and matching settings are automatically stored in memory for instant recall when the same frequency range is reselected later.

The back panel features SO-239 inputs and outputs plus a ground lug. The FC-10 comes with a 3 foot (1m) coaxial cable, 3 foot (1m) control cable and features a pull out flip stand if you wish to operate the tuner at an angle.

Specifications:
* Coverage: 1.8 to 30 MHz Amateur Bands
* Power rating: 100W PEP
* Memories: 31 total
* Tuning time: 1 to 8 seconds, 4 seconds average
* Antenna matching impedance: 16.5 to 150 Ohms (SWR less than 3)
* Tuning power: 8 watts or more
* Matching Time: Under 30 seconds
* Power requirements: 13.5 volts DC @ 700 mA
* Enclosure: 4.5 x 4 x 9.5 inches 4.5 lbs (117x93x243mm 2 kg).
