FP-12 Power supply
The FP-12 Power supply provides an output voltage of 13,8 VDC at 12 amperes,
designed for use with the FT-7B and CPU-2500R transceivers,
and includes an 8 ohm speaker for base station listening.
Seen here the Yaesu FP-12 Speaker Power Supply with the CPU-2500R 2m transceiver.
FP-4 Power supply
The FP-4 power supply is designed to provide an output voltage of 13.8 VDC at 4 Amps
designed for base station operation of the FT-7, FT-227R, FT-817
or similar transceivers designed for DC operation.
The FP-4 makes a good choice for the QRP operation.
Both power supplies FP-12 and FP-4 use the same (TA7089M) voltage regulator IC which was used in some Yaesu FP- power supplies. The regulator was available in an 8-pin radial lead package which is no longer available. So the TA7089P in a 14-pin DIP package must be used as a replacement. Yaesu use to sell a replacement TA7089P in a 14-pin DIP package for these power supplies (P/N D3000448) it was mounted on a small circuit board with wires attached, however even this item is also no longer available. So when looking for the regulator I.C. you are basically on your own finding one.
