Meters and Display

The neat front of the LDG MC-7800 hosts clear and easily understandable displays, measuring 3.5 inches for each meter. The meter acts as a regular S-Meter, showing RF power, compression, and SWR. 

A great feature of the meter is that you can independently light each display with a different colour and alter the brightness to suit your unique needs. 

You don’t have to worry about your MC-7800 easily breaking as it’s made from metal, giving it a clean, sleek look and a sturdy base. Its size is compact, meaning it isn’t intrusive and can be moved or placed wherever best for you.

Power Supply

It’s important to note that the LDG MC-7800 needs a 12-volt direct current (DC) power supply. You can provide the DC power from any supply with the correct voltage that supports at least 500 milliamps, making it versatile. 

However, you can also source this power from a Shack DC Power Supply.
