Justin, OH8STN, talks about putting together an entire radio communication system that can be carried in a small pack.
Thanks for watching this next episode of How to solar power your portable radio.When talking about manpacks, we normally mean ham or military-style manpack HF VHF or UHF radios. Well, we have taken the military manpack radio concept and applied it to a man-portable manpack portable power system, for civilian communications off-grid. The system includes the battery, dual charge controllers, fused leads, power distribution, and a shooter style manpack pouch to keep things simple and organized. The system was designed in simplifying the build, stopping any unnecessary wire mess, and has an active focus on rapid deployment and portability off-grid. The system can be used to power one or more high-power radios for instant power and comms off grid.
