It's All About The Power Man

Tonight's training was on making sure you have enough power for an event.

Steps to take

1. Assess station requirements
2. Design backup power system
3. Purchase & Install
4. Test Monthly

Establish Station Requirements - Decide what you want to do?
  • Monitoring
  • Net control
  • Aid Station
  • Duration and duty cycle

List all components
  • Computer equipment
  • Consider other household needs (lights?)
  • Transceivers/tuners/interfaces
  • Computer & monitor
  • Phone land-line/cell
  • Lighting

For each component collect the following information

  • Voltage requirements
  • Peak current consumption
  • Duty cycle Requirements / How long

Homework is to find this information out.  If you would like to find out how much battery you will need use our handy dandy batter calculator for here: Battery Calculator
