Steve, KJ6EIF, will be giving a presentation on his solar-powered remote base station setup. Download the PDF below and join us on this week's Tech Net!

Here is a photos of my “Go Kit”. The Icon 7100 is an all band
transceiver. My Prius Plugin has large battery capacity, Anderson
Powerpole connectors and a Yaesu FTM 400 vhf/uhf transceiver
installed. The antenna works great as an inverted V on 40meters and
above. The mast extends to 30 feet and can be supported by bungees
next to the vehicle. MIke, KM6OTE
