40 meter portable NVIS Buddipole antenna setup in my backyard


2016 Field Day, I was lucky to have shade, and Sun for the panels

 

 

My dog (K9/Tobias) kept me company,but was more interested in chasing squirrels, hence the leash and a picture of the radio setup, all equipment was powered by solar

Antennas,20 meter Ham Stick,40 meter NVIS Buddipole,and a 40 meter loop.Two 100

watt solar panels, one panel for a AGM battery & the other for a LiFepo4 battery.

 

 

A different kind of portable set up,we had 3 antennas set at this location RV03, Operator N8PW

 

 
 

Table and equipment at RV03

 

NPOTA NS16, Bright and Sunny, perfect for Solar, It was a very windy and interesting day.

 
 

  Two 100 watt Monocrystalline solar panels, used independently to power two different battery systems, besides the fun of setting up at any location, it's a chance for me to experiment.

 

 

 

Operator at work, the pile ups, the wind, and the dealings....

 

My friend Bill,N8PW operating from a small portable table, which worked nicely for setting up all the equipment needed to run the Icom radio at 100 watts

The unit on the left (pictured below) was a backup solar controller, it controlled one of the 100 watt solar panels and a AGM battery, but was not needed. The unit on the right was a solar controller for the other 100 watt solar panel and the LiFePo2 battery, which is the black unit underneath, The LiFePo4 battery system performed flawlessly.

Pictured below, Jan.30th at Location NP14, for the NPOTA.  Running solar power, and a home brew solar controller. My friend Bill, who was operating a Icom 7000 at 100 watts on the 20 and 40 meter bands.

 

 

On the Air with the Boy Scout Jamboree, October 2015, Camp Manatoc, Peninsula, Ohio. Solar powered.

 

 

 

 

 On the ai

 

 

My very first Feild Day set up, 100% solar,worked 20 meter on phone,just searched and pounced, (1B/OH), was able to run near 100 watts to the antenna.

2x100 watt solar panels for the radio charging 2x55 amp AGM batteries, and 1  20 watt Goal Zero panel charging a small cycle battery for lights,fan and laptop computer. I used a Buddiepole antenna(worked great!),even tho it was very windy, heavy cloud cover and alot of rain, the solar panels were able use some of the UV and IF Light, their was not very much visible light freq. in Ohio for field day. I had a great time with all of you fellow amateur radio operators!
