Actually it might be nice to get off this rock.

Just don't land on just another rock with one leg hanging out into space and your solar cells in the shadow.... ;)

Not only is the generator home now, but it's been tuned up and exercised:

 [ If you can't see the photo go to ]

I hate having to use orange extension cords but we haven't built a transfer panel at the new house yet.  Also in photo: very long driveway, which inspired me to buy a plow attachment for my John Deere.  It gets snow out of the way and also mows down Connecticut Ninja Cats.

Heh. Wouldn't even phase New Jersey Ninja Cats who are Connected and would make your John Deere an offer it couldn't refuse!

Nice genny pic, IG.

More than enough to power your new ham shack!

Let's do Field Day in your back yard in June!! I'll bring a radio or three, you supply the emergency power and the 100 ft towers and antennas!

And we can use my call! Since you are in New York, it can just be "K2NE" instead of using the "/" for a different call district. Just like Old Times!

Yup. I can see the auto-keyer for the CW bands now....


Fun !!!

Using a chromebook. what a horrific os. You have zero privacy with it. I think I will install centos or gentoo on it. I can't believe this chromeos. btw it's a acer c720.

The whole idea behind cloud storage, software as a service and social media is for you to give up your privacy.

Actually the whole idea is to collect your money on a recurring basis.

How long do you run the genset under load for a single break-in session?

Also, if the genset is 5,000w (continuous), should you run around 75% load for each break-in session?

I ran mine at 50% load for a half hour at a time.
