Well, speaking of charge controllers (I think we were speaking of them 
here a few days ago), does anyone have a source for a simple charge 
controller that I can use between an Astron P/S and a battery?  I'm 
looking for an affordable backup power option - the West Mountain Radio 
PwrGate is nice, but it's a bit pricey.  Many of the charge controllers 
I'm finding on Google are of the variety for solar panel charging, and 
are very expensive.  This is for a digipeater site that is subject to 
power outages and needs battery backup.  The idea was to have the Astron 
go through the charge controller to the battery, and the digi hooks 
direct to the battery.  Thanks!
