Buy Meanwell PS, power meter I own a few, cheaper one - Zetagi HP202 is reliable after calibration.
You can't have too many antennas...

It kind of depends on what radio you have, if it's stock and puts 12w SSB out of the back then a 5A-7A supply should be fine, if it's one that chucks out 40w-60w then you need to be looking for a 15A-20A (yeah, you might be able to get away with a 10A, but it will struggle) PSU.

If you're local to the Bristol/North Somerset border, then I've got a decent 5-7amp power supply you can have for free. I'm not willing to post it however, plus the postage would probably cost as much as it's worth ;)

Thanks for the offer collector, i am a little far away nip over. I think i will get a 20 amp plus in case i decide on and amp. Does anyone make a decent swr power meter, with a built in frequency counter. Then at least theres only one patch lead.

Those are nice, but get reamed for import duty.
