I've got a Sirio 5000 PL with a mag mount and I was wondering if I could use this at home or would I have to make some alterations to it.

Also with power supplies, can I run a CB and 100w amp from the same supply?

Thanks John

For the Sirio 5000 to work it would need a groundplane, so you would need to find some metalwork to mount it on.

You could, but it would have to be at least 12 amp continuous rated.
