Re: IF Output ?

Sverre Holm (LA3ZA)
I use the opportunity to follow up on this thread. The IF output of the K3
and K3S is centered on 8.215 MHz.

But there is also a second IF at 12 kHz with no output. I wonder if anyone
has made an output for the I- and Q- channels at 12 kHz. It looks fairly
simple to find judging from the schematics.

KX-2 Portable Solar power config?

Elecraft mailing list
In reply to this post by Elecraft mailing list
 Would like to set up a portable solar power config for the KX-2. This would be backpacking portable or portable solar panels, especially after disasters/hurricanes around here (NC/SC). Would be using an external NiMH or something suitable, not Lithium, as I understand Lithium is very difficult to charge by solar.Does anyone else do this and have recommendations?Tnx for any suggestions, Bob K4RLC

Re: KX-2 Portable Solar power config?

David Christ
<https://www.bioennopower.com> sells solar panels and controllers for LiFePO4 batteries which they also sell.  Have not used their products but they have been recommended on this site more than once.

My system for backpacking the KX2 includes either a 6_Ah or 10_Ah
LiFePo4 battery, a 21W folding panel, and the Buddipole PowerMini
controller.

Not if you have the right charge controller and the right Lithium
chemistry. Buy a battery from these guys. Good folks, show up at major
hamfests/conventions.

https://www.bioennopower.com/collections/12v-series-lifepo4-batteries

Buy this solar charge controller -- it's the only MPPT controller I know
of that is RF quiet. Make sure you get the one for LiFePO4.

https://www.amazon.com/Genasun-GV-5-Li-14-2V-Controller-Lithium-Batteries/dp/B01N9BP7VL/ref=asc_df_B01N9BP7VL/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198064505516&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15451059233750887838&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9032155&hvtargid=pla-349256761369&psc=1

I charge my LiFePO4 batteries from AC using the power supply for an old
laptop, connecting it to the controller in place of the solar panel. If
you don't have anything suitable, buy the matching controller from
Bioennopower.

I meant "buy the matching charger" from Bioennopower.
