|1/30/2004||Emergency Equipment||Portable Wind Generator
The Japanese company New Power Ltd, is manufacturing a small
portable wind generator with a propeller diameter of 1 meter. It is
designed to assemble easily in the field for temporary operation.
The size, weight, and power level make it useful for medium power HF
backpack portable or pedestrian mobile operation.
The New Power model NP-30 lightweight windplant (2kg) charges 12VDC
battery systems at low wind velocity:
4 meters/second (9mph) wind produces 10W (.75A)
9 meters/second (20mph) wind produces 33W (2.5A)
Cost 86,000 Yen (US$813)
|1/16/2004||ANTENNAS||Tape Measure Antenna
Designed for use when portability and operation on different frequencies are primary the considerations. The antenna is housed in a molded plastic housing holding two stainless steel tapes calibrated in meters, decimeters and centimeters. These tapes can be extended to the required length for a given frequency and locked in place. A permanent frequency-to-meters conversion chart is attached to the antenna housing. Each end of the tape is attached to a length of nylon line which acts as an insulator and a means for securing the antenna to structures of suitable height.
