What?  A HAM w/o emergency backup power.  HI HI that is when I end up at the EOC 1 mile east.  Did you get a lot of ice?  We had about an inch of sleet, two heavy rains today so far, finally above freezing.

Re: Gap Titan DX + Generator

 

Jim...

Been there, done that...

All I can say is to NOT buy a generator from Harbor Freight...junk...

Buy Honda with a battery starter...

Here in California, there's special emission law requirements...

A group of us in the So Cal DX Club pooled our order and bought from a dealer in Phoenix...

We drove over there and picked them up in 2, 1 ton dually pick ups...

BTW: I can run the refrig., the freezer and all of the LED lighting and flat panels here with it...

Probably would have been a good idea to have one of those tilt over base plates for the GAP.  Remember seeing them somewhere recently.  Might be a good investment  about $150 for cheaper model and almost $500 for the really good one.   Probably best to just replace the bent section .

Hate ice storms. Had one a few years ago and the yagi elements went inverted U-shape; fortunately they thawed out back into shape.
