Just lost my cable internet. Using cell data. This system keeps me powered when there is no power.

@adamd

if you ever want to describe what each kind of thing is in this, I'm here for it

@deejoe A summary would be..
Amateur radio gear, solar electric system (inverter, charge controllers, batteries), networking gear and misc junk that needs to be cleaned u. :)

@adamd

the blue boxes I figure hold batteries, but are both types of big cans also batteries?

@deejoe The big cans are duplexers for VHF repeaters. (RF Filters)

@adamd

You are awesome! Love your setup.

No cable internet here either.

@adamd are you using the tuning cans to mutiplex an antenna or just because of proximity on the same band?

@adamd Very cool! I bet this helps reduce your carbon footprint! How much power do the panels bring in?

@adamd Wow. Nice shack. Running a repeater or two are we?

I miss those chairs.

@noorul Its a combination of ham gear, network gear, and solar power stuff from Outback Power Systems, who I believe is out of business.

@adamd cc @ND3JR , who I think would appreciate this. Especially the radio gear
