I discovered at the FDMI vendors night 2019 a nice addition for my FT-818 to prevent breakage of the connector.
It is a FT-817/818 PowerPole adapter. A nice add on from Jonathan N0WL. This adapter prevent breakage of the well known «fragile» power connector of a FT-817/818.
If you’re interested in buying, you can visit eBay store at the following link
It is indeed a well spent money by staying away from trouble. And also, you may now manage more easily all your power cables by having all them using standard PowerPole connector.
Great work Jonathan!
