Is an External power supply necessary ?
I am in the market for a Ham Radio for my FJ. Was considering the Yaesu FT-7900R. Is it essential to purchase a separate Switching Power Supply for it, or can I just power it off my S-Pod ?
Gigaparts.com was recommending an external separate Samlex 23A Switching power supply.
What say you Ham experts?
