Hello All:

I have a slow W/E and was playing around with some nifty items I got for
Christmas for battery backup in the shack, and I was wondering if anybody
has put together an emergency power plan for a Mark V. As those on this list
know, the Mark V 'requires' the FP-29 which provides both 30V and 13.8V. I'm
wondering if 2 large gel cells could be used both in series and parallel to
provide 13.8V and 27.6V, if the transmitter was run at < 100 watts.  I'm not
sure if it would draw 30 amps or not at this level. Batteries wouldn't last
very long, I wouldn't think, if it does draw at this level.

Presently, I'm working on a battery switch-over scheme with the PWR-gate
from West Mountain with my FT-847 and other ancillary equipment. I'm
considering a larger UPS for the computer as well as for the satellite

73, Jamie
