October GARA Meeting – Battery Management
This month I will be talking about a battery management project I am working on for a set of LiPo batteries to power a portable station. The goal is to monitor the status of each battery in the set and to automatically switch a battery to a solar charger or to the radio as needed. I built a manual system to do this, but now I want to automate it. I hope you find it interesting.
Also, winter Field Day is coming up, so if you are interested, please let me know. I will discuss it at the meeting. Several of us participated in last year’s event and had a good time, so I hope you will consider helping out this year.
