#91 - Emergency Power System Changes?

Last week I started setting up an emergency power source for my radios so that I could operate during our frequent power outages here in Hawaii. I connected 6 6-volt 225Ah Titan T-105 deep cycle golf cart batteries in series and parallel to create a 12-volt battery bank that would give me 675Ah of power to start with. I planned on adding additional batteries onto the system over the next few months to increase its capacity. These batteries are recharged by 4 100-amp 12-volt solar panels feeding into a 40amp MMPT Solar Charge Controller. For the past two days, I have been contemplating making a change to my emergency power source for my radios. Currently, the system is set up with 6 6-volt ba

#90 - Water Storage Tips

I have spoken a couple times about using 55-gallon drums for long-term drinking-water storage but I do have a couple of tips that I have not shared yet to make storing and getting access to that water more convenient and safer. There are two ways that you can store water barrels, standing up, and on their sides in a rack.

#89 - More Water Storage Barrels

When preparing for natural disasters, civil unrest, societial breakdown or any other possible scenario that could affect your families, one of the most important things to consider in your storage is water. You will need to store a minimum of one gallon of water per person in your family per day. If you have pets, you will also have to store additional water for them. Here in Hawaii, getting 55-gallon drums that are safe to use for long-term water storage is very difficult. It is not just something that you can run down to the local Wal Mart or Home Depot and pick up. They are available from many suppliers on the mainland, however getting them to ship the empty barrels to Hawaii is the diffi
