Powering the station

Commercial Power, Troybilt Gas Generator (5.5K), 100 Watt flexible solar panel and Ever Start Deep Cycle Battery.

Power supplies are: Yeasu FP-1030A and MFJ-4230MVP.

The Yeasu FP-1030A is then connected to the Rigrunner PWRgate PG-40S to charge and maintain the deep cycle battery.

The output of the PWRgate PG-40S is then connected to the deep cycle battery and a Rig Runner 404U.

The TGE Booster/Regulator is connected directly to the deep cycle battery and then to the Rig Runner 4008H.

The TGE Booster/Regulator provides a steady 13.8 volts from the 12 volt deep cycle battery.

This is powering the FT-991, FT-8900R, 222 MHz Transverter, DR-1X and the BCR-220.

My son Kim (WA8KIM) set me up on Anderson power connectors and many other power related items! Thank You Kim!!

Kim (WA8KIM) provided me a CE Power Analyzer so I can monitor the condition of the battery and the power system.
