1 Finished product is installed. A shelf for the Astron Power Supply and the 3 VHF/UHF power amps (144 MHz, 220 MHz and 432 MHz) that are located under the operating postion.
2 3/4" pine board with all parts cut
3 3/4" pine was easy to work with
4 Sides have been routed with 3/4" dados for the two shelves
5 Rough assembly
6 I applied a coat of Minwax Pre-Stain and one coat of stain
7 The bottom panel is screwed in place and the four casters will be mounted
8 Finished! The castors have been secured to the bottom. Now ready for the 12V DC distribution to be mounted on the left side
9 The 12V DC power distribution is mounted on the side. The Astron 70A power supply feeds a West Mountain Radio RIGrunner 8012 80A panel. One leg of the RIGrunner feeds a Powerwerk PD-8 8 port distribution block that is metered for voltage and current. I use this distribution block for all the low current devices. Anderson Powerpole connectors are used for all DC connections.
