The inverter I use with my system is a 12 volt DC in, 117 volt AC out Exeltech 1100XP.ukhayes said:If buying an inverter/charger, be sure to get a tranformer based unit. They will be field servicable at a service center like ours. The new "quick switch" technology units are sealed and since made in China, no parts available. Stick with Xantrex, Magnum Energy, or Outback Power. They have readily available boards and are usually 2-3 year warranted.
Uh, there's many other reasons besides prepping for "a worldwide collapse of law and the economy" for building and experimenting with alternative electric power systems. :rofl:linkable said:Uh, at least 1/4 of the world's population HAS no heater fan, generator, fridge, or electric lighting, and they still survive just fine. So why bother with such niceties, or trying to prep for such? If it aint a worldwide collapse of law and the economy, why not just move to where things are ok, instead of putting self and loved ones at risk by staying in a blighted, high risk area?
Funny how that works, ain't it.Tower is laying at work with all antennas but all the people I installed their antennas for free magically got busy when needed help with mine. Still have people upset because don't bring bucket truck to fix their stuff for free.
Got access to UHF stuff for free from the shop I used to work at. Public Safety orgs transitioned to trunked digital. 25 million local option tax paid for it. They went Harris radios.About down to what I want to keep but have a stack of Motorola UHF radios programmable into public safety and ham bands.
