In the summer of 2003 I made several modifications to the Henry amplifier to make the cooling system more efficient while at the same time reducing the fan noise.  Full QSK capability and a step-start inrush limiter for the HV power supply were also added.

It sure takes a lot of wire to make this 'Wireless' hobby fun!

A great paddle that is made to the same specifications as the original Mercury Paddle designed and built by N2DAN.
