5amps for a uk spec mckinley  would be fine .if exported  it would be close to the limit but still OK. So a 15amp would be best. 30amp would  cover you if you upgrade your gear

I have a 30W Sharman, and it is very good, not had it that long so can't say how good the longevity is.

Thumbs up here for a Sharman power supply. power - regulated power supply  1f44d 

I have the SM-30 which I've owned for a few years - very quiet both in audible hum or RF emissions, tiny compared to my old 'linear' supply (which was a veritable foot warmer/door stop!) Also left assured that as a 'switched mode power supply' should anything go wrong I get zero volts from it unlike some older 'linear' supplies that could bang the whole unregulated voltage through to your rig(!)

It can easily handle a HF rig at 100W and luckily as I only run the 10W my licence allows it happily powers all my radios at once with a HF set, couple of VHF rigs and a UHF rig all hooked to it.

Always worth buying the biggest power supply you can afford to give you headroom and future proof any further radio interests.

I picked up an oldish second hand PS 30 SWII 30 amp PSU, same as QJE but badged with a different name, at the end of last year. It does the job. Mine doesn't have the noise offset knob that yours will being an older model, but the great thing is that I have not experienced any birdies with it anyway. If you do by chance experience any you'll be able to move them off the frequency you're using with that knob. I'm sure your purchase will do you just fine  Smile
