    Again, a great video. I appreciate you encouraging Hams to have some permanent form of power and not just some temporary lead acid solution.

    On a cloudy day couldn’t you just plug your power supply into the Genasun directly?

    Ramble on all you want, none of it is wasted air. Great video yet again.

    Good to see stations going solar. I removed my power supply from my shack this year. Don't need it. I'm in Northeast Ohio and we get very dark winters. To combat the lack of sun in the winter I increased my solar panels to to 600W and increased my battery capacity to 300Ah of home built Li-ion battery packs. I'm using a 4s configuration but only charge them to 16V. I can run them down to 13.8V but that takes quite a while. I designed and 3D printed some custom housing so the system is modular and scaleable. I've been getting away from the Anderson plugs and transitioning to the XT60 plugs.

    I like your videos.
