Portable Power for Ham Radio

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8-jxMtpklw&app=desktop.  This is post 2179 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Michael Martens (KB9VBR) for this informative review of portable power options for your ham radio station.  Although this video only suggests antenna and power options for portable and emergency radio operations, it would be a good idea to consider what Michael is saying in our unsettled world.

Please take an inventory of your home and shack  supplies to see if you and your family have sufficient resources to survive if you are cut off from stores and neighbors.  At the very least, you'll get an indication of what you need before panic buying begins.

Here are some of Michael's ideas:

"My recent video on my portable HF transceiver kit generated a lot of questions on what I use for a power supply. So as I’m prepping for an upcoming camping trip, I thought I’d take a moment and share what I use for portable power when off in the field.
