I have had the BCD-966P2 for about 2 weeks now and can finally use it. The stock power supply is a switching mode pile of garbage and it nailed the lower HF bands with nothing but hash and noise. I went with the same style DC power supply as the Afedri SDR and the problem is solved. The replacement is a Jameco linear regulated 12v 1 amp. Here is the link to the model I purchased.
