Ham Radio Online - Using Solar Power
Solar PV is ideal for powering Amateur radio equipment because PV panels are almost always designed to charge 12 volt battery systems. Coincidently, most Amateur radio equipment is designed to operate from 12 volt power supplies. Naturual diasters such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornados, severe storms and blizzards all knock out commercial power systems. Because ham radio is often used for both primary and backup and communications in times of disaster, its nice to have a reliable source of power to keep your radios running.
