Is anyone a HAM Radio / Amateur Radio operator?
#1
Hey guys... I was just curious if any of you are HAM radio operators.

I got my Technician licence in 4-5 years ago and it's another hobby that seems to overlap with my interests.  Some of my battery and power builds are specifically for radio communications projects.

I am currently working on a portable repeater project and also some more compact lithium battery setups to cram into that pelican case and make a complete coms kit in a case.

What does White and Black mean for your Anderson PowerPole connectors? 24V?

Red/Black is Battery Output
White/Black is Solar Input

White/Black is connected to a Genasun MPPT charge controller for the 60 watt folding panel.

Wow, that's a long time!

Are you operating on HF, and what type of radios do you own?

Have you made any portable power packs for any of your gear?

Another ham here! One of the reasons I'm building my smaller lifepo4 pack is for qrp stuff. Got a guy at work who is way into SOTA and he got me interested. Need to test for my general one of these days...
