Re: Bayou Jumper Power Supply

That should be quite adequate for power but I would first run it from battery power to compare "noise" from the Wall Wart.  I would use the wall wart to charge a battery and then run from the battery.  A 12v AGM or Gel Cell can be had for under $20 usually, I have 3 and use them for my FT-818...... don't know what I'll do for the BJ yet.

Others can correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think it uses anywhere near 3 amps.
