There are a lot of inexpensive 24 to 12 volt electronic converters much smaller than the old Icom unit.
I carry a few just in case one of the other 5 converters go bad.
Just google 24 to 12 volt converters. I forgot which ones I purchased .
Here is a sample
This one is 480 watts..

The Icom 24-13.6VDC Converter used by Amel on SSB installations is difficult to find. Normal price is around $800-$1,000USD.

I have the same Icom 706 MK2g and the tunner AT 120.
I will install my radio and I would like if you have a special converter from 24 to 12 V. What kind of antenna do you use, Shakespeare?
Pleas let me know your experience with this radio.
I´ve got some information about grounding from others amel owners.
Thank you very much
