I've been using a 8A transformer PSU for some years now. I decided I needed a bigger supply as I now have many radios to listen in on the ham bands and needed more power.
As of now I was only able to get 3.5 watts out of my CB. As soon as I switched on the new 400W switched mode supply I am getting, surprisingly, 5 watts output power.
I had no idea this would happen. Strange no?
