- Apr 17, 2014RE: << In another story, I was powering my other 803A using what was labelled as a 9vdc wallwart. Well it turned out that the output was really 13.4 vdc! The borders of the LCD display were getting dark and I don't know if the higher voltage was the reason. >>
Are you measuring 13.4v at the receiver DC input when the radio is creating the drain current -- that is, with the receiver turned on -- or is that 13.4v reading at a no-load state ?
Am asking, as many a defective wall-wart with leaky diodes or going-bad filter electrolytic can "spike" the DC output to higher than expected or safe to the circuitry.
