  1. Yikes! Right now, that seems very much out of my budget, at least for now in this crisis. Thank you for your recommendations that probably would be a Dream option for me. I would still maybe like to run my HT the Ken wood THD7a on solar, more as a way to feel like I am not completely tied to the grid.

  2. @K3MRI I’d like to charge the HT. As for the price, More like $70-$100 but I’d rather stay cheaper. Here is the problem, I’d like to operate my Kenwood D74 when there is no power. Whether that means charging or running, I just want to operate when no more power is coming to me from the power company. I’d like to find the cheapest and quickest way to charge/run my equipment.

  4. I’d like to find an opinion for powering my HT via solar. The radio I’d like to charge with solar is a Kenwood TH-D74a. I’m looking for a solar system for power that is super easy and under 70$ if possible. Thanks! 73, KI5DZU

  6. Hey thanks, I am a relatively new amateur radio licensee. I live in the central Texas area and I am a really interested in the hobby but lack time and money to play radio the way i'd like. I am a US Army Afghanistan combat vet. I'm currently interested in digital modes and building my HT fleet 😁. I am not an engineer or a science wiz, but I am a determined street kid but I am eager to learn! Do everything to the glory of God! KI5DZU, 73!
