KGM
I have just bought a CRT Xenon, Sirio Performer Red Devil fighter P5000 Antenna and a D135 SWR meter.
It's mainly for in the car, but I'd like to use it in my shed sometimes so what size amp should I get? 

3 -5amp
5-7amp 

or something else?

I presume you mean power supply a  amp is something that gives you more transmit power , if you are going to progress to a more bigger radio ie one with SSB you really would need a power supply that runs at about 40 amps but to run you small radio TBH I would get one that runs at 20amps just incase you need to run anything else apart from the radio from the power supply.

The power supply in the top photo should be fine for the Xeon.......it has a 5 amp (constant) rating so that will be ok for that particular radio. As mentioned by Nubster above though, if you buy a SSB radio in the future you will need something bigger, probably at least 20 amps because they have a much larger current requirement.
