Self powered turnkey portable LiFePo4 solar generator for mobile GMRS and ham radios for base station or field use
Innovative, compact, and built tough.
In the shack, on the road, or in the field, the Scout G1 will help get your comms up.
Two prototype Scout G1’s at the Huntsville HAMfest… the Yaesu 817 and a SignaLink USB mount securely, without tools…
Our two-year warranty is the best in our industry and is only possible thanks to the quality of our gear. If you have trouble with any of our equipment that we cannot resolve through phone support, ship us the machine and we will repair or replace and ship it back to you at our cost.
A rugged system that fits securely within a fat 50 caliber ammo can, yet slides in or out without tools.
CNC machined chassis, electrically isolated from the metal ammo can.
The upper left bay houses the radio, the upper right bay can accept a modem, tuner, etc.
Each bay has a power pole connection in the rear, and an independent power switch up front.
The upper equipment bay is 2.25″ tall, 10.5″ wide, and 8.5″ deep.
Although optimized for the Yaesu 817, the Scout’s equipment bay is able to be adjusted, by the user, for different equipment.
The lower storage cubby is 1″ tall, 10.5″ wide, and 8.5″ deep. It can carry documents, accessories, or even a tablet or small laptop. Our modified 27 watt Solar panel also fits!
Power comes from the included 108 WH AGM battery, which is replaceable without tools, and is a standard UB1290.
The Scout is also compatible with drop-in LiFePO4 cells, likethis one.
Internal, three-stage solar controller that handles up to 50 watts of solar input.
Voltmeter and ammeter so you can monitor power usage.
Powerful 3 amp USB port for powering and charging peripheral devices.
10 amp circuit breaker recessed inside the microphone pocket.
There are two grounding lugs in the rear. They are hydraulically crimped and soldered to braided grounding straps which lead to the Front-mounted ground post.
Cooling, if needed, is provided by two brushless DC fans that are counter-sunk into the bottom of the chassis. They pull air from the front of the upper storage bays, through the internal compartment, and exhaust out of the lower storage cubby. Both fans are controlled by a small rocker switch on the front panel.
Turning off the main switch makes the machine go dark but still allows the radio, headphone, and speaker to operate.
Forward-facing 3 watt speaker provides plenty of volume and good tone for voice.
Front mounted headphone jack for silent operation or noisy environments.
