I'm thinking of adding a pre amp / amp to my set up (McKinley (export mod), Thunderpole 5 antenna). I already have a Nevada PS 08 powering the radio, but wondered if the Nevada PS 30 M would be a suitable partner????
Also, can someone run past me the order the following goes in counting back from the antenna....
Thunderpole 5
Zetagi antenna tuner
Swr meter
RM KL 203
McKinley radio.
Thanks for your help
Smiley Miley 🙂

Hi Smileymiley,I see you have the PS 08 running you radio and I think your asking would it also run a 203p.I just googled that amp and it needs at least a 10amp power supply to run it.So the PS 08 is a bit under gunned at 6A-8A,But look around as you can find some reasonably priced supplies.Google TLC electrical as there’s most probably one near you or they can deliver,I think a 20A supply from them is about £40 and should run both your radio and linear.Just have a look your be surprised.
As for the order of radio equipment inline -
McKinley - Amp -SWR Meter -Antenna tuner - Antenna.
Sorry I went the other way but their both in the right sequence.
Not sure what Zetagi tuner you use but bear in mind if it’s one of the smaller MM27 they max out at 100 watt,That 203 supposedly does 200 watt ssb.Easy does it…lol
Hope that was some help.
Cheers Tom.

Cheers Tom.
I was thinking about using a separate amp for the 203. I have a TLC near me, so that's a bonus. It's the pre amp side I'm interested in,the post amp will be for occasional use.
Thanks for your help though, much appreciated 👍

Check out the 203p with switchable preamp,They can improve and raise distance signals your listening too but on the downside can also bring in a lot of unwanted noise too.The separate power supplies are a good idea too.
Cheers Tom.
