Hello All!

First proper post here since introduction etc, just getting back into after good while away have a midland Alan 48 pro sirio pl5000 fighter with mag mount and midland 42ds just wondered if anyone had any advice on setting up at home initially  all been bout over few months due to financial situation looking for advice and recommendations for power supply for 48 pro 
Preferably cheaper the better lol (I know that’s not always best option but needs must) 
Thanks

Hi Greg. Others here might be able to offer suggestions for outlet of cheap new PSUs, but my suggestion would be this option, see my post the forum here:
https://charlietangodxgroup.forumotion.com/t2615-cheap-high-current-power-supply-option

The particular server PSU I used I dug out of a skip for free, but if you are going to buy they cost very little on a well known auction site. I see some on there now for under £6.

I have checked the manual for your Alan 48 Pro and its spec is 12.6V ±10%, so well within the 12.0 to 12.2V the server PSU would output without any further mods inside it.

It's not for everyone, so you might not be comfortable modding or using, but it is a very cheap option which works and has done me good service.

Good luck Greg, best thing you will ever do, read every question at least twice, you have loads of time, don't stress and if not sure on a question flag it and come back to it.... 
Most the questions are what you will have looked at, at some point and quite a few out of 4 answers there are 2 it could be and 2 that are no where near the answer and a few that are common sense....
Again good luck and post how you got on, take around a week to get your call sign and you can pick one of your own, if you look on "Essex ham" Web site they have call sign checker to see if the call sign you pick is all ready taken....
