In todays episode of OH8STN Ham Radio we are talking about generating off-grid power with a vertical axis wind turbine. The goal is a hybrid system using both a wind generator and solar panels to power an off grid ham radio station and Winlink RMS Gateway from my home. The Vertical Axis Wind Turbine or micro wind generator is part of the Winlink RMS Gateway project you may have read about on https://oh8stn.org .
The VAWT project will be combined with the solar panels already up on the tower, and the diy Ammo can 576wh LiFePO4 battery storage system we built on the channel last year.
Combining the Wind Turbine, solar panels and Lithium battery storage help create a hybrid Wind/Solar off grid power system, which should easily keep the Winlink Gateway powered up, when there is no sun.
