Hi Darren. There's a high and low powered version of that rig. I have the high powered one and can tell you that it doesn't pull any more than 10 amps with the power fully wound up on FM. I've measured that with a meter, plus confirmed by running 10 amp fuse in the power cable.

Would advise to use a PSU with twice that rating though so you don't strain the PSU. If you can find a good 20 amp, that would do it. If you're handy with a bit of DIY and confident with working with electrics safely, then check my thread HERE for a very cheap idea

30a is plenty and will cover any bit's you might add not that you need anything adding.
You might get a meter that requires 12v and that sort of thing.

+1 on the 30A supply. power - The best power supply to run a ss 6900n 1f44d 

I have the Sharman SM-30 and it handles everything I've thrown at it from CB, Ham, PMR, chargers and even some electronic bench testing. Always best to get the biggest you can afford rather than having to 'upgrade' later. Wink

As said get the biggest you can afford so that 30a will be ok when you do get the add-on bit's lol.

Another vote for a 30A PSU. Should you ever decide to get your ham ticket a 30A PSU will run both a 100W HF rig and a dual bander plus any accessories you'd like to use all at the same time.
