A [email protected] amps DC power supply

Since a [email protected] amps DC power supply is required, why isn't it included with the Flexradio or sold by the company?

    Is there a recommended brand/model of power supply?

    Astron's work fine. Personally, I have a 50A W5RV supply that I've used at my station for years, and it does a fine job as well. I'm sure you'll get a lot of useful recommendations here.

    Power supplies are more or less commodity items. No real purpose in a "Flex Supply" in that crowded market. Plus, your station likely has more devices than the radio, so your supply will need to be scaled appropriately. A good quality linear supply will last a lifetime.

    See buy/accessories at Flex site.

    or eBay.

    Just be careful with tightening the SS-25 set screws, they are soft brass and fragile.

    I use a dedicated Astron VS-50M for my Flex, works perfectly  The Astron 35A models will work too, but its continuous current specification (25A) was a bit too close to the edge for me.  I prefer a bit more head room.
