Julian OH8STN, a US Expat, retired broadcast engineer and Ham Radio Operator living in Finland speaks from years of experience about portable power for ham radio, and the practical skills needed for the use of ham radio as a utility for off-grid and grid-down communications.
Virtually all of the framework he outlines in this brief YouTube video are applicable right here in the Mid-Hudson region. I've learned a great deal from Julian over the years and his information has guided me in the acquisition and use of our 'family go-kit'.
You may find some of his ideas worthy of discussion on the morning '8:35 on the 805' QSOs, in the comment section below or perhaps on our own 'HF Test Net' some evening on 10 Meters (or 80 Meters or...?).
