    With Emergency Power for Radio Communications, you will explore the various means of electric power generation for every application–from charging batteries, to keeping the lights on. This book covers the foundation of any communications installation—the power source. Use this book to plan ways to stay on the air when weather or other reasons cause a short-term or long-term power outage. Find ways to reach beyond the commercial power grid. Identify methods for alternative power generation that will work best in your particular situation, perhaps taking advantage of possibilities already on hand.
