Default Re: 2m/70c Radio battery eliminator build

nice - a UV5R, (or is it the 8W model??)
that is a bad idea - the regulator will cook when you transmit 5W.
i would put the regulation at the other end of the cable with a heatsink on it.
then use the battery shell for extra filtering - inductors,caps etc.
