    I like the multi use bench. Especially the RCBS Rock Chucker! Or is it the Rock Crusher?

    Really? Mine have been great. How did you isolate it to being the P/S?

    My 36 amp MW that's 4 years old shows up on my IC 7300's scope, and can be heard on the lower HF Bands. The fan is also noisy. I only use it for my Yaesu 2900 running 75 watts. It's all good though. Its a tank, and a darn good one. In the past 4 years there have been many things hooked up to this PS, and it has never failed. I do keep it clean. I use a separate PS to run the 7300, just to keep things as clean as I can.

    I just won't trust any switcher from now on. Just isn't worth it.
