They say 57.6 VDC. However, with surgery that might be tweaked further......

I don't think the Dozo people who inhabit northern Côte d'Ivoire, southeast Mali, and Burkina Faso would like their name being used as a pejorative term.  Simply using the word "people" instead of "dozos" would have sufficed.

It's always going to be problematic discussing what is clearly a Political Subject - Taxation - on an amateur radio list. 

The taxes being imposed on personal imports are clearly unjust and should be scrapped. I note the USA sensibly has a De Minimis Value of $800 a day exempting personal imports from Duties and Taxes.

Those who dislike these punitive taxes should of course let their MP know their views.

I have been using the Eltek Flatpack2 PSUs. They use a CAN bus for setting and monitoring. They often come set to 54V when you want 48V but can be re-programmed. Unfortunately, quite a few other hobbyists have found out how useful they are so the price has gone up!

Thanks to one of our DL friends I have found the problem.
Simple - the output pins were wrongly marked with felt tip.
The correct pins give me 54V output, next step is to find the adjuster pot
and tweak it down.

You should still be able to buy stuff from other amateurs, if it is sold not in the course of their usual business, without VAT.

The post Brexit import guidance states:  " Sales made by persons who are not in business are outside the scope of these measures. This includes gifts and consignments sent from consumer to consumer." 


Depending on the origin, there may be duty even on gifts of around 3% but I would think for pretty much everything secondhand out of the EU from other amateurs, it should be zero, as we are duty/tariff free.

As a discussion about VAT and import duty,  that's fine.  If people want to start introducing political comment, it's probably better kept off list. A "No Politics" rule would probably do a lot for harmony.

Anyone who wishes to discuss the matter at length is perfectly welcome to email me off list, where I will defend my position robustly.  I would say "or message me on Facebook" I am however still in Facebook jail for a spelling mistake, so it may be a few days before I can post ;)

For the sake of clarity, the reference that the complainer objected to was specifically about the people featured in the BBC article and not the author of the post nor any of our fellow amateurs. Amateur Radio really is much better as a politics free zone I think ...

Cherokee Europe 680W 50V PSU connections

neil whiting
 

I have one of these PSUs type PE2114/242. I think it came with a 13cm PA purchase.

Googling found another type number of NTQA91HA which seems to be Nortel, pehaps this
is an equivalent. Seems to be found in phone basestations.

It's marked in felt tip as to which pins are the mains in and 50V out.
I have applied mains as indicated and it lights the panel lamp but I don't see 50V.
Does anybody have any further info, for example do I need to short some pins to turn it on?
