Is it better to leave the 13.8VDC applied or is it OK to turn the power supply on and off after use? I turn the PS on and then the button on the front of the 6300 and use as normal. Power down is 6300 first then the PS.
Which is best or does it matter/
Thanks in advance for the response.
The way you are sequencing the radio on and off is correct and best
ON> Supply first then > radio.
OFF> Radio first then > supply.
I don't think it will harm the radio either way but in theory powering the radio on/off in the correct sequence may prevent any damage to the radio from spikes & surges during power up and allow the radio shut down correctly.
