Re: Current Draw

The DC supply current gove up with power and load mis-match.  Typicial current draw
at 10W is about 2A give or take.  At 80M without mods it tend to run 12-15W and a bit
more current.

As you go up in frequency the power out drops so the current well as well.  High SWR will
increase current drawn at any power out.

I'd not use a supply less that 4A.  I'd also not use an antenna over 2:1 SWR.
