Subject: KI6RJW replacement requires 2 power supplies & adding fuses to cabling

Message: He used a Astron LS-18 Power supply he said easy to adjust to 30V put 15A fuses on the + & - cables......Pyramid PS-26 power supply for 12V and added 5A fuses on the + & - cables... My guess there is a 6 pin power connector to radio (?) and cut and spliced the FP-29 original cable for the replacement power supplies. Of course many 12V low cost power supplies out there, but I did not search personally on the 30V type. EBAY and/or are places to look for a used ham needs. No sure this is helpful or not, but sure looks like your going to need two power supplies o replaced the FP-29...I will leave my thoughts of Yaesu engineering to myself as my good old sailor thoughts can't be used. Hee!
