Buck, Running a heavy power supply line with a lighter gauge wire at the radio end OR a lighter wire at the power supply end, the overall net supply resistance (and voltage drop) will be the same. For example, 100 Ohms in series with 1 Ohm equals 101 Ohms net total resistance.
Likewise 1 Ohm in series with 100 Ohms is still 101 Ohms. It doesn't matter if you take the voltage drop at the input or at the output end of the power run if the total load is at the end of the run. I checked with Dr. Ohm to verify this. :-) Jim - W4RKS ______________________________________________________________ Elecraft mailing list Home: http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/elecraft Help: http://mailman.qth.net/mmfaq.htm Post: mailto:Elecraft@mailman.qth.net This list hosted by: http://www.qsl.net Please help support this email list: http://www.qsl.net/donate.html Message delivered to arch...@mail-archive.com
