    Default carleymostar Intro

    i am trying to make a mobile cb into a base station. could someone help with power supply? also do we need a base station antenna instead of the mobile one we have? thanks in advance for your help!

    So the people at cobra have recommended that we get one of the Pyramid converters at the link above. That makes sense to me, they seem like wonderful boxes. The only thing (this is where I just don't understand how electricity works at all) is that all of them have outputs well above 2 amps. They have one that has an output of 3 amps, one that has 5 amps with a surge of 7 amps and then higher and higher. Does that mean that all of these would blow our little 2 amp fuse every time that we plug it in?

    welcome.

    the radio will use what it needs for amps. you should be fine with a little 2 or 3 amp one though.
