Harbor Freight Solar Panel for Ham Radio
I spent a lot of time on a medical mission trip to Mali, West Africa years ago optimizing their solar power system. (Constant dust on the solar panels from the Harmattan winds was a battle for efficiency.) This is an interesting video done by KC6TYD about his first experience with solar power in the ham shack. (This only about the concept, not an endorsement per se of Harbor Freight or the manufacturer.) But I am definitely interested in some solar projects here at home in the future.
