2016-02-13 Solar power for outdoor amateur radio 3 years ago
I came across this article: DIY: The Off Grid Ham 100 Watts For $300 Solar Energy Plant - offgridham.com which has plans for a solar power setup for 300 US dollar which can indeed power a 100 Watt amateur radio transmitter (on a reasonable duty cycle, not constant transmission). I do wonder what the parts would cost and where to order them for European radio amateurs. I will probably be interested in some setup like this when life permits me to go outdoor for operating radio for a day. Found via I am frequently approached by frustrated radio amateurs who are looking to get into solar power and feel completely lost in all the options - Jeff Davis KE9V on Google+.
