Currently a Tech, studying for general and extra exams. Have an HF radio (Icom IC-746Pro) and a VHF/UHF radio (Icom ID-5100A). Have a 2M/70CM full-length vertical dipole for the 5100 and building a Broadband Butterfly Terminated Dipole antenna on the house. While the house is on city power, I thought it would be best to run the ham shack in the back yard on solar power instead. However, I don't know who is a reputable dealer in purchasing MPPT controllers, PV solar panels, or deep cycle batteries. Amazon and eBay just hasn't been doing well for me on the latest of purchases in other areas and quality of materials have left me wanting more. Does anyone have any recommendations for reputable sources to buy from or brands in the solar industry?
