(Since my email to the NMVHF group will fail...)
For those of you who play Rover in contests, or enjoy portable operation
in "exotic" grid squares AND who are also Costco members, there is a
Coleman 100 W Solar Panel With 8.5 AMP Charge Controller on sale at a
$40 discount == $119.00 at Costco.com only.
The sale runs through August 31.
For me it was $125 with Colo tax and free shipping from NY to Colo.
It is 2x the power and 1/2 the weight of the Harbor Freight set of
panels I've been using in my Rover outings for the last 5 years.
I will probably swap out the charge controller for some other
selection -- eventually.
Just thought I'd pass out a Heads Up.
