Getting ready for the XL, that may show up here in a few weeks. I already ran the wire in the wall to an electrical box in the shack (normal 110 twin outlet but not connected up).

I got an electrician lined up to help me with the 220V because I need breakers re-arranged and final hookup. I do not expect him to know what type of plug I need/should use. Can anyone recommend what plug is good for 220V ham radio equipment such as the XL?

Thanks

Hi Andy,

The plug doesn't really matter because Flex will give you a cord set with an unterminated end. You can put the plug of your choice on it. You can have your sparky wire either a NEMA 6-20R straight blade receptacle or a L6-20R twist lock receptacle. Those are the two common ones. Have them wire a 240v 20 amp circuit, which will use a double pole breaker.
