    Nice...the fan sounds like my vacuum cleaner but I guess you need it to keep the 15 watts he's getting from the stinger board from melting the radio. :blink:

    RM/KLV must have outsourced their operations to China.

    I watched that video but the performance of the stinger board looks kind of lame or is it just me???

    if you want a stinger amp the AD-203 is not bad, it got great reports on it too


    I installed the AD-203 stinger boar in his amp case, built a little pre amp, and most importantly built a reglated power supply from scratch

    This is what I used, and ran it with a large heat sink to handle the heat from the load. So far it has worked pretty well

    I admit that a larger power supply would have been a better choice. BUT I did this as a charity case, so I had to use what I had access to

    Build an Adjustable 0-34 volt power supply with the LM317
