Has anyone experimented with using Supercapacitors (1.5-6 Farad for example)
across the DC supply to Ham Radio transceivers (SSB,CW or intermittent

Or should I just save the money and go for a deep cycle Marine battery to go
under the hamshack bench at home?

I have an Astron PSU which is not beefy enough to keep the transceiver happy
when on High Power. Just looking for alternatives to replacing the Astron, or
the huge weight and cost of good quality Marine deep cycle batteries.
