    I think he's asking for opinions on power supplies for a "mobile radio"

    But doesnt say what mobile radio - typical vhf/uhf FM ham radio? Or a 100 watt HF rig? A CB? It makes a difference

    But lets assume he means an FM V/U mobile ham radio

    I think the obvious source of power would be the vehicle's battery.

    At least give us an "advise and contrast." There are a gazillion supplies that are available, from 3 Amperes to over 100 Amperes, some that are even suitable for Amateur use!

    If you're serious and not trolling...how much current capacity? How much do you want to spend? A nice switching supply like a Jetstream or something from MFJ would be fine. Why not look at HRO's or your dealer of choice's website.

    I suggest an Astron 70m placed properly in front of the headrest of the driver's seat and ziptie. Connect the radio power cord directly to the back. Connect the Astron power cord to a Harbor Freight power inverter, ziptie the power inverter to the front of the steering wheel and plug the inverter into the lighter socket. You are now set up to enjoy mobile radio. Don't forget to roof mount a GP 9 dual band antenna so that you can work dx on the way to the therapist.
