Ham(Radio)ing it Up with Solar Power

by Jasmin Malik Chua, Jersey City, USA on 11.26.07

Pretty nifty.

  1. Hello Gary,
    This is a great article and video on alternative energy. I am a big advocate on solar and wind power. With the current cost of energy it certainly seems that it will be the way to go. Thanks for the great article, enjoyed it, best 73′s, Jeff
