- 2.4m whip
- FC-40 antenna tuner
- Internal batteries
- 13W suitcase solar generator
On this video I make a QSO with English station M0UOO/P (Richard) operating from the beach in Southampton.
The solar generator produced just enough energy to keep the battery's charge. I also had it connected to the radio for 15 minutes after I had finished operating (with the radio switched off) so I think that the batteries were fuller at the end of the day than when I started.
I would like to know more about your setup and any improvements or changes you have made since this video. I have the same radio and am very interested in being able to take it portable with sustainable energy.ReplyDelete
I haven't experimented much with solar power lately but I would like to have a light military-style foldable panel.ReplyDelete
