Solar Powered Digipeater Project

CURRENT STATUS:  ON AIR

 

This project is for a APRS dead spot in Northeast Alabama. It's going on top of a 170ft tower. I am building this out of spare parts laying around the shack and some help from a friend. My parts list is as follows:

TinyTrak4 TNC

Control/Power Cable for TNC

Wouxun HT @ 5w

External Power Supply for the HT

Omni Directional 6.5dB 2m (Tunned) Antenna

Renogy 50 Watts 12 Volts Monocrystalline Solar Panel

 Renogy 30A PWM Solar Controller

12v 28Ah Battery

    

    

   

 

The tower is an old AT&T relay tower located in Douglas, Alabama.
