    Hello everyone,
    I was wondering, Does anyone know what model Kenwood radios the PS-30 can be used on besides the TS-180S?
    Just got one and I'm curious, can it be used on a TS-140S for example???
    Thanks

    You can use most power supplies with most radios if they can produce the Amps the radio needs.
    Changing the connectors is what seems to be a problem for some hams.
    Doing simple wiring for a DC supply-radio cable should be learned without much trouble !

    The Kenwood PS-30 can be used with any Kenwood (many other brands as well) transceiver that uses the 6 conductor/plug connectors that are compatible. If your radio uses OTHER type connectors, you will have to make modifications. (One big DISADVANTAGE if the PS-30 is it has a dedicated (hard wired) 13.8 Volt cord, not a removable one. You should, however, add over-voltage protection, which the PS-30 does NOT provide, although easy to add.One thing, though, is the PS-30 is 20 Amperes PEAK, and only 16 Amperes continuous It will NOT be adequate if you are using the TS-140 (or similar HF 100 Watt class) radios for full power FM or digital modes.
