Portable Solar Powered GoKit for Ham Radio
« on: August 02, 2017, 12:56:13 AM »
Hello Operators.
Over the past few weeks I've published several articles entitled "Man Portable Off-grid Power for Amateur Radio", on This video is the result of that research & field testing. In this video, I'll breakdown each module & component of my Portable Solar Powered GoKit for Ham Radio. Later on I'll do individual build/review videos for each component.
The  kit follows a "Lego block" approach, and is designed to be modular. The kit is based on three unique  modules:
- Power & DC distribution
- Radio & Computing
- Antennas & Support

The entire kit weighs between 7-10 kg depending on the options chosen (including 1L water and rucksack) .
You can find links to the original blog posts, research, field testing, and the usual plethora of full HD images, in the video description, or by visiting the companion blog post at
