[aprssig] HT Recommendation

 I am running a Radio Shack HTX-202 ht on APRS and it works great even
though it only put's out 5 watts but I can run the ht off external power (13
5 vdc) from ether the car or in the house on a regulated power supply.    
And by the way the HTX-202 can handle 15 vdc external power feed into it
with no problem.    I have an Alinco DX70T hf rig that has a problem that I
can't figure out,   it won't transmit unless the power supply voltage is 15
vdc.   I have tried running the DX70T in the car no transmit at all,  and I
tried it on a different power supply with the same result,   no transmit
until the supply voltage is up to 15 vdc.
