Solar Powered Digipeater Project



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.
