    A year and half ago I got my HAM radio license. Here in Canada, I have what’s called Basic+. Basically means I am legally allowed to use all the available bands HF/VHF. I have a Yaesu multiband radio and have it hooked up to a battery jumper charger using a multi band antenna.

    I also have a handheld CB radio that can use AA battery packs (I also have it plugged into the battery charger on the cigarette lighter plug).

    Adding to that, I got a USB charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter from the dollar store for charging phones and the like.

    The only thing I haven’t got yet is a 75 watt inverter for the cigarette lighter for charging larger items like my netbook or my eton emergency radio, though Damian doesn’t really like them ;)

    This is my emergency communciations centre and it sits on a plywood shelf above the freezer in the basement. It’s always ready to go for pleasure or emergencies

    Just saying, for funnzies :)

    • Sounds like you’ve got a good setup started there. The only thing I see is that the inverter sounds way too small at 75 watts. I have a simple 400 watt for small things and it works fine but I’m going to upgrade very soon to a larger one such as this: “duracell 813-0807 800 watt dc to ac digital inverter”. Not too expensive and should be able to run my fridge from the car hookup too.

    I had to get out the LDS manual this morning for a few of these questions. Thanks, I do have fun with them.
