Hello Steve,
   Would you take info from someone who has made solar energy a hobby? 
I'd first direct you to my personal web page (qsl.net) listed in my sig
file below where you will also find a photo of me on the roof with my
solar panels and an HT.  Click on "Station Setup" and you'll get a primer
on my setup complete with recommended reading and a list of the vendors I
used.  If you have any further questions I'd be happy to answer them
offline since this is somewhat off-topic.

   Solarex is my present favorite.  They have a 77 watt model with either
6 or 12 volt charging.  They can be "seriesed" to get higher voltages. 
Twenty-four watts is a common requirement.

   Solar panels as well as DC fluorescent lights can be purchased from
either of the vendors listed on my page (Kansas Wind Power, Abraham
Solar, Jade Mountain).  I would recommend you check local golf and
battery stores for the deep cycle batteries.  I use golf cart-type and,
locally, Colorado Golf (I think that's the name, not sure) had better
prices than battery places.
   Hope this is a help.
