13.8v Eagle 10amp power supply

A few days ago i was given an Eagle P008D 13.8v 10 amp power supply. It showed 13.8v with no load but with a small load it gave 0v. A quick look revealed that for some reason the 2n3055 power transistors had both gone. I had a tube full of 2n3055's i must have bought 10 years ago so replaced them with two of these and the PSU is working nicely again.
I new that one day those 2n3055's i picked up at a radio rally would come in useful. :-)

Always fun to "pack rat" supplies. noticed that you enjoy SOTA. There is a guy here in Colorado that uses his pack goats for that. FUN! He has some videos on you tube with the goats, Rooster and Peanut are there names. Here;s a link to his you tube channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/goathiker

or you can search goathiker on the you tube site

hope all is well...

I fixed the supply, the pass transitors had gone, no idea what caused that as i was given it in that state.
I have seen some of the peanut and rooster video's, very interesting. I have to be my own pack mule :-)
and when my granddaughter comes with me i sometimes end up carrying half of her stuff as well.
