Hi Robert

You may remember that we exchange info on the 325 SatSyc Receivers. I remember that you said that the PSU was a weak point with the system  -  you were right on , after finding a suitable antenna and replacing the lithium battery in the Rx., it was running sweetly for about 18 days, but yesterday it failed. The power fuse (AC input) had blown, and following a quick inspection within the PSU - nothing appears to be burnt out or visibly damaged. What was your experiece of fault finding with this item. Before I proceed further, do you have the schematic for the PSU - this is not in the normal manual - its an AC to DC, and a DC to DC unit. Its a quality item, Model VF100 -494-10/CX ,made by "Converter Concepts", and should be worth restoration. Any ideas ?
