Generates strong RFI
on February 16, 2011
On the positive side the Pyramid PSV300 runs cool while supplying power to my 100W amateur radio rig.
The description says that the fan is thermostatically controlled - hmmm why does it run all the time? Thankfully its pretty quiet.
I have RFI suppression cores on the DC leads and on the USB line from my SignaLink modem. When I turn on the PSV300 the PSK-31 waterfall turns yellow! Same if the rig is running on another supply - turn on the PSV300 (anywhere in the room - on either circuit) and the waterfall goes yellow.
Yes there is a warranty and perhaps Pyramid would fix it but sending it to NJ along with $15 for return shipment isn't my idea of cost effective!
I would suggest that anyone having an application where RFI would be a problem purchase something else - a comparable MFJ power supply is less than $100.
