Transceiver Saver (Overvoltage Protector)

This is a transceiver saver circuit that protect  a transceiver device (applicable to other device as well)  from overvoltage of the power supply. This circuit is used to protect the device  by regulating the power supply,  avoiding damaging the device if overvoltage occurs.  If the transceiver transmits current of above 2A, a heatsink should be used for the transistor. The value of resistor must provide output of 12.6 V during normal operation, you can make trial and error through measurement when choosing this., you can start with value around 100R. It’s recommended to use a high wattage Zener diode. Here is the schematic diagram of the circuit:
