    Has anyone powered an IC-25H with a PS15? Seems that a simple power cable set could be built. Also, where do you find the connectors?

    Thanks. Tom, KE0QL.

    There is no on/off switch on a PS15. It was designed to be turned on/off by a few of the Icom rigs of it's day.
    Not hard to wire one in if you know where to wire it to. I have done it but I don't remember how it was done any longer.
    You might find the modification on the web if you search.
    It (the rig) also has a jack on the back to supply 9-12 Vdc for the memory backup as was mentioned.
    Been a while since I had one of those rigs!

    Tom -

    Mike, K7MH is correct, the Icom PS15 has NO Power Switch -- it is remotely switched by the radio attached to it.

    To use this supply with other radios, you need to jumper (or install your own remote switch) 2 pins on the Icom PS-15 DC power connector.
    Consult the PS-15 schematic or standard wiring used with this 6-pin DC connector.
    Manual can be downloaded from Icom Global Support web page (Search by model name: PS15)

    As far as source for the connectors, PowerWerx is one of the easiest for Internet shopping, ordering and shipped to your door !

    very convinent for the type of custom cable you are looking at building.
