So Carl, in your case that would be great!
With 49.83 empty you could do something
Well, I’m going to wait to get some more solar
cells. I’m also going to measure the current
requirements of the C Crane and the 49 MHz
walkie talkie that is being used as the receiver.
As you know, my projects go very slowly. I am
still working on the Gates board and the 13.560 MHz
transmitter still needs to be completed.
I was able to fix up a nice reel to reel deck – an Akai
Right now this solar powered repeater project is
meant to not yield a lot of money. But I could
at some point use a 900 MHz link. Neil built a
nice one a while back with some modules he got
from Digikey. With my vision limitations that might
not be possible right now, but I will still look into it
in the future.
I also believe that Ken, whose Part 15 station is on
a boat, did a remote from a local restaurant. He had
some kind of remote system he used to get from the
restaurant to his Part 15 AM station. However, it
may have been something like a Barix Extremer. (I
sure wouldn’t mind having one of those!)
I will keep you guys posted. When I get more solar
cells, the unit will go outside and start functioning.
